Initial Firearms Permit Application is Now on BreEZe!

The Bureau of Security and Investigative Services (Bureau) is pleased to announce that the Initial Firearms Permit Application is now on BreEZe. Applicants can find the option by logging into their BreEZe account here: www.breeze.ca.gov. Please note that online application processing times are generally faster than that of paper applications.
Applicants are still required to scan and upload, as an attachment, the Certification of Firearms Range Qualification Training provided to them by a BSIS Certified Firearms Instructor. This Certification can be found on Page 3 of the Firearms Permit Initial Application, which can be accessed here: https://www.bsis.ca.gov/forms_pubs/fq_initial.pdf
Further, applicants are still required to submit their fingerprints to the California Department of Justice for a background check. To access the Live Scan Forms relevant to the applicants’ qualifying license, you may visit the links below:

Please be advised that effective July 1, 2018, a BSIS security guard registrant seeking to associate a BSIS Firearms Permit to the guard registration must complete an assessment to demonstrate that they are capable, at the time the assessment is completed, of demonstrating appropriate judgment, restraint and self-control for the purposes of carrying and using a firearm when performing security guard duties. (Business and Professions Code Sections 7583.23 and 7583.47).
