Title: (Permit) Wait Times in Wethersfield.
Post by: The Baron on August 08, 2018, 12:40:35 AM
I dropped my app off in early July & thus far, the only “Success” I’ve known has been in terms of mentally noting a myriad of broadly differing timeframes/gen. info all the while resisting the gnawing urge to catapult myself onto the face of “Mr. Sun.” :wall:

NOTE:
The Detective has a whopping caseload & thus, I do *not* want to call until or unless I absolutely must.


When should I “reasonably expect” a call/update?

I don't know what to expect from Wethersfield, but 8-10 weeks is considered fast, and many people experience many months (have a friend who's took 11 months!). If you applied just a month ago, I would not expect anything any sooner than early next month, and then only if you are among the lucky.

Do not bother the detective or whomever is "processing" your application. If it takes over 90 days I'd start the appeals process rolling. You will just receive the pre-addressed/stamped envelope you included in your application package in the mail one day, out of the blue, with your temporary permit which will just be a 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

BTW: welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum. Wethersfield does a good job. I received my temporary a long time ago well within the 8 week timeframe.

Keep track of the time.  If you have not received it by 8 weeks, contact them to see what is going on.  Then appeal if you don't get it then.

Would you kindly expand upon what constitutes “....A Long time ago;” so I might compare & contrast as I pursue ‘Peace of Mind;’ as it were?

I got my permit in 2006 or 2007. I don’t think anything has changed much in terms of leadership or processing. If anything,
It’s gotten better with electronic fingerprinting.

I'd check with the SFLU to see if (or more importantly when) they sent your background check back to the town.  The town only has five business days after they receive it from the SFLU to  approve or deny your permit.  Any longer it's pretty much a "constructive denial" and you should start the appeals process.  Remember it's the individual towns holding up the process - not the state.  If it was the state - why would some towns be issuing the permit in 3 weeks while other towns are taking 3 months?

You make some good points.
I rang SFLU & they said they’re backlogged something fierce.

Perhaps I should call Records on Monday?

They, all of them, have 8 weeks to approve or deny you. If they delay, it's grounds for an appeal. If they deny for reasons not listed in the law, its grounds for an appeal. You have a right under CT law (for whatever that's worth) to a permit within 8 weeks unless they can satisfy the appeals board you're unqualified. Its unambiguous.

Hearken!
As of now, (August 8th, 2018) the application is under the auspices of DPS.
Should both 1) The 8 weeks pass (which is vast approaching); &
                  2) The application remain “at the mercy” of DPS thus, effectively leaving me in the lurch; what would my options be at that point?

You could wait. Almost nobody actually gets their permit within 8 weeks. Or you could begin the appeal process; http://www.ct.gov/bfpe/site/default.asp. (http://www.ct.gov/bfpe/site/default.asp.) You have 90 days from the end of 8 weeks to launch the appeal, otherwise you time out on the appeal. DPS is not where any shennanigans happen, so I'd wait say 12 weeks to give them a little extra time before beignning the appeals process, but that's just me. If you do file for the appeal and you eventually get your permit before you go up to Hardford to see the Board (which is basically everyone who files an appeal since it usually takes a year plus to actually get your day before the appeals board), do make sure to cancel the appeal so as not to backlog them.

Guilford has been issuing them in 4 - 5 weeks.  These stories about the State being backed up are a bunch of horse shit.

Post by: 19LG on August 29, 2018, 03:35:19 PM
How recently did guilford turn an application around in 5 weeks?  Was it recent? Supposedly the State is backed up and is only doing applications from May now.
Title: Re: (Permit) Wait Times in Wethersfield.
Post by: Jake on August 29, 2018, 06:44:12 PM
The most recent got theirs a week ago in exactly 4 weeks.  The other 3 back in May and June.

"How recently did guilford turn an application around in 5 weeks?  Was it recent? Supposedly the State is backed up and is only doing applications from May now." 

Sounds like BS to me unless Guilford has some connections other Towns don't, which I think is very unlikely.

Post by: 19LG on August 29, 2018, 07:17:02 PM
Thank you for the response on Guilford. My understanding is the town can issue without the FBI or State response back but I’m unaware of them doing that unless the person had some sort of connection. I’m not discrediting you but I’m hearing reports from other towns of 18 weeks, 16 weeks, 13 weeks and these are suburban towns like Guilford. If you don’t mind me asking, did the people who got their permits have some sort of connection with the PD?  Thank you!

‘The State’ said they were: “All caught up.” Via the feedback I’ve unearthed Wethersfield is regarded as rather good.

The 8 week mark is but a few days away, at this point.

I'd wait a bit past 8 weeks for it to "go through the mail" and whatnot, but that's just me. Why clog the appeals process with needless claims?

If the State is truly caught up then yes I agree what is a few days over 8 weeks. But I heard (second hand) that they were backed up significantly.  If it turns out there is a significant backlog I would appeal to preserve your rights. Technically you are denied the day after 8 weeks and you have 90 days to appeal.  I applied July 8 so I hit 8 weeks this weekend. I’m hoping to get this resolved soon.

I'd wait till 10 or 12 weeks. Still well within the 90 days. It took me 9 weeks and a relative took 10, and that was without any "backlog."

Was that recent?  I agree if you got yours at 9 weeks then why bother filing an appeal. But if there is a major backlog that will delay you out to 16 weeks then you should appeal. If you don’t mind me asking what town did you and your relative get your permit in?

both from milford, which is good for issuing permits AFAIK and this was back in 2015. I may be wrong, but I don't think an appeal will expedite your permit, simply gives you a fallback if no issuance after 8 weeks + 90 days.

So some homo, anti gun, a$$hole wants the anti gun legislature to determine who can and cannot OWN a gun.  Got it.


"No other state agency uses the same appeal hearing format, said Michael Lawlor, under secretary for criminal justice policy and planning at the State Office of Policy and Management. The Department of Motor Vehicles, for instance, has full-time hearing officers who individually conduct hearings if a driver appeals their license suspension after a drunk driving incident. The officer renders their appeal decision; the driver the can appeal it further to court.

“Everybody would be a winner if they could make this a more efficient process,” Lawlor said Thursday. “You could eliminate the backlog overnight if you treated it like other situations.”

That change would have to be made by the next legislature or governor, though, Lawlor said. The legislature could also choose to define what factors make one unsuitable for gun ownership and that might simplify the process, Lawlor said."

Thanks. In the meantime hopefully the state clears the backlog. In addition to summer vacations impacting the staff, they also have to process applications for bus drivers, teachers, school personnel. Now that those are cleared and vacation season is over hopefully they can get through the backlog. I did ask my state rep to look into it FWIW.

Middletown is presently processing Permits entered into SPBI’s queue in June. Whereas mine landed in August.

The Chief of Police & The Records Dept. Supervisor (PD) told me I ought hear back by Oct. & to call them back if not.

On a positive note when my PD called on my behalf last week the State said they were still in the first week of May so at least it looks like they cleared a month of backlog in a week.  I still don’t know where I am in the queue though. My prints were taken on July 8. Electronically submitted same day to SPBI and the FBI, returned by FBI on the same day. So maybe I am in the July queue?  For the Florida permit they give you a tracking # on the application!

My prints were submitted on July 10th. Thus, we’re apparently not merely in the same boat, but manning the same oar. :wink:

With the wait being this long I have saved up enough money for the legion series Sig. I guess the one bright spot in this whole process!  You should also confirm that the FBI completed their check and returned it so then you know it is just the state that is left to complete. I’ve heard stories in the past that the State has blamed the FBI. It would suck if you got to October and the State says they are waiting on the FBI. You should at least have that info so you are informed. I would also assume that Wethersfield did their internal review already?  My local PD said my temp would be ready as soon as the state report gets back.  I took that to mean that they completed their internal review already and probably have the FBI results back already.

Can I just call the FBI?

Also, “The Internal Review” (née, “Investigation”) doesn’t get the green light until the PD gets the all clear from State/FBI. What they likely meant was:
 1) Said investigation proves oft/inherently timely; &
 2) The Chief is a Gun Rights Proponent with a firm proclivity towards signing off. Needless to say THAT’S A GOOD SIGN!

Yes if you call the FBI CJIS customer service number and give them date of birth and name they will tell you the date the report was returned. They probably already sent it back to Wethersfield so one less step in the process.

I just googled FBI CJIS and stumbled upon the number. It is a West Virginia area code if that helps. When you call it is an automated system but just choose the option for the background check. I guess when you are fingerprinted on the digital scanner those prints are automatically  sent directly to FBI. I think those results are sent directly back to the issuing authority. So there is a chance Wethersfield has had your FBI report for a while and the only missing piece is the state check. I don’t think it would speed it up for you but at least you would know they can’t blame the FBI if you can verify they already returned it.

Furthermore, it appears either “The Automated Line” is down/unavailable OR the festering, smoky crater where my temple should be is more spacious than last I checked (i.e. I dialed the wrong extension). :dunno:

Thanks. Making progress on the backlog. Did you ever confirm the FBI completed your check?  Also CT is an open carry state!  While most conceal it’s not technically a concealed weapons permit.

Its not even a carry permit. We don't even have those here. It's a "pistol permit," whatever that means.

UPDATE; 21 SEPTEMBER
I have received my “Tentative Hearing Date” (7 March) with/via The Board of Permit Examiners.
Hopefully WPD will indeed get “The Green Light” from SPBI & “The Date/Hearing” will be rendered gleefully defunct w/in the next few weeks or so.

Is WPD aware you filed the appeal?  I think once they become aware of it there is a sense of urgency to get the permit approved since they don’t want to waste a day at an administrative hearing. I inquired with the board and they said the town isn’t notified until several weeks after paperwork is filed by you. Wasn’t sure if you let them know appeal was en route to speed up their process.

I have not. However, it must be highlighted that the proverbial ball is not purportedly in the court of WPD. Rather the next move to be made is that of SPBI. :wall:

Why would there be any a sense of urgency? They have until March 17 to get it done. In fact if they choose to be dicks about it they could withhold the permit until March 10th and still avoid going to the hearing.

Not to mention that the hearings are generally held in Wethersfield in the conference room.  They used to split them up between Middletown and one other city but I believe all have been held in Wethersfield for a while.  I'm surprised that the OP received such an 'early' date.  I was under the impression that the Board was scheduling hearings much farther than six months out.

There is no specific person just have your students call 860-685-8190. They might get transferred around but eventually someone will help them locate where they are in the process. Also have your students call the FBI to verify when the FBI check was sent back. 304-625-2000 option #3. It is my understanding that non resident permits and eligibility certificates are being turned around in 12 weeks.  The people waiting over 12 weeks is local issuing authority sitting on the results / doing their own investigation.

If you checked the FBI background check date (usually instant or one day) - here's the process - after you submit your application to your town - they have 5 business days to send your application to the State ( and the FBI background check is instant) .  And your town has 5 business days to accept the background check- AND APPROVE OR DENY YOUR APPLICATION!

per the Ct Statute You should have applied for an appeal a while ago


More importantly - you have to have to appeal within 90 days of the constructive denial or you have to start over with the CT PERMIT PROCESS

The State should be working on the late June / early July prints now. I’m basing that off other people I’ve spoken with who applied recently who confirmed an 11-12 week turnaround by the state to return prints and the State telling me back in July that it has been a consistent 12 week backlog. I think there was an increase in the backlog over the summer as they processed prints for teachers and school workers but has since leveled off again as the summer vacation schedule is over and there aren’t many school related fingerprint checks in the backlog. I think once the State works on your prints it is a couple days of work and then they are sent to the issuing authority. Wethersfield’s comments about an October response seem on track given September is over

Thanks although I think Middletown is one of those towns that tend to take longer than other towns. I’ve heard people have gotten it done in 13 weeks recently. I guess it all depends on making sure the chief is around to sign it.

Just to clarify the FBI results were sent to the State. To my knowledge the State is / was sitting on them and not sending them back. It is kind of a moot point now. Spoke to a few people in my town who got theirs in a little under 14 weeks recently so I’m only a little over 1 week away. Currently I’m at 12.5 weeks. I will say this my town PD is very efficient. They have an officer dedicated to processing the apps. Benefit of living in one of the few ‘Red’ towns in CT.  Some of the discrepancies from towns to towns is that the bigger cities have a full plate investigating real crimes and the permits aren’t a priority for either the investigating officer or the chief. I think although the state is slow they return the prints around the same time for each town. Then it becomes an issue of how many layers of approval and what additional steps are needed to be done by the town. Luckily my town doesn’t have any of those garbage extra steps (no reference letters, no interviews with neighbors, etc).

I became a Connecticut refugee this past Spring.  Took asylum in PA.  Took a whopping 5 days to get my PA permit.  Filled out a 1 page application at the county Sheriff's office, they took my picture and a $20 bill.  No finger prints required.  Permit showed up in the mail the following week.  Boy do I NOT miss CT!

BTW open carry is legal in PA without a permit; a permit is only required for concealed carry.  Interestingly I have yet to see anyone open carrying.  Might be more common in the boonies?

Baron as of last Wednesday they were through July 5.  I asked if that is for fingerprints that were taken July 5th or entered into their system by July 5. The person I spoke to said that the date of July 5 is based on the date of the fingerprint card not when it is entered into their system. So basically a 13 week backlog. I don’t know how long it takes to return a response but I ran a name and DOB BG check on a tenant through the state police and it took them 5 days including weekend so 3 business days. They emailed the results.

I’ve found it highly prudent to stick w/in SPBI timeframes as oft as possible as long as “your” prints have been confirmed by SPBI to be in their queue (I cannot even begin to quantify the inordinate heap of time/patience I squandered; in hindsight).  :wall:

*EDIT*
Furthermore, SPBI confirmed to me last week that they were working on applications entered into their dept. in “Late July.” Perhaps you mean to say they’re working on those which entered The Fingerprinting Dept. (Stop #1 @ “The State”) as of July 5?

The only thing the person I talked said is that they were doing fingerprint cards from early July last week. Shouldn’t be much longer.

I became a Connecticut refugee this past Spring.  Took asylum in PA.  Took a whopping 5 days to get my PA permit.  Filled out a 1 page application at the county Sheriff's office, they took my picture and a $20 bill.  No finger prints required.  Permit showed up in the mail the following week.  Boy do I NOT miss CT!

BTW open carry is legal in PA without a permit; a permit is only required for concealed carry.  Interestingly I have yet to see anyone open carrying.  Might be more common in the boonies?

I heard something recently (possibly Guns and Gadgets youtube channel).  Some PA legislation has been proposed to require all guns be UNloaded when in a car.  Something to do with reducing road rage shootings. 

When I lived in Ohio 70's /80's PA drivers were the absolute worst I had to deal with from MA all the way to CO.

Seems as though I always hear news reports about "blood running in the streets" and "wild west shootouts" in the Keystone state.
What? You mean this is fake news! Can't be, gun control works!
It is rather refreshing that permitting is simpler and smoother...

If they were doing late July last week then they should be doing early August this week or next week and then 2-3 days to process and email. Maybe if you call the The state can probably tell you exactly where you stand in the process

Not me.  I'd burn the applications, and then call the applicants to tell them they were lost and they have to start over again just so I could hear them cry, whine, moan, and yell.

Let’s just say that shy of some “abnormal complication” as the applications are working their way through “Middletown” it is not inherently prudent to call The PD in search of updates.

Thus, I would recommend ringing “The State” by default.

Do you think they have a room full of employees twittling their thumbs purposely not doing their job, hoping that you will call them everyday?  I dont get it, I understand you want your permit and that they are also late to the game issuing it.

1- did you file an appeal?  ( ididnt read through all the pages)

2- They are probably sick and tired of the same people calling all the time asking the same question. I honestly wouldnt doubt that they write down the names of people calling and delay it more.

‘The Baron’ was asking if anyone called the State of Ct. I was simply redirecting him to ask his PD where his permit is. I think he wanted people on this board to call the state but all he needs to do is call the Pd

As I stated, Wethersfield is (& has been) awaiting a reply from “The State” & cannot do much of anything that I could not (e.g. call SPBI to inquire) at this point until hearing back.

Furthermore, please reference my update gleaned from calling SPBI circa 3 hrs ago.

1- Yes. I put in for the appeal in early September.
2- They are “Sick & Tired” of any applicant(s) calling as they are overworked & understaffed with a mammoth workload. Ipso facto, I’ve made a point to “Ease up” on the calls to the PD.

Seriously! - The 8-weeks is bullshit some folks still think the problem is with the SFLU and FBI back ground check! and not their local PD!  Your local PD can approve your permit as soon as the FBI approves  (literally seconds)  or The next day!  The town can also approve it without the the FBI check if they want

Hold your town/city accountable after the CT statute requiring 5 business days after you submit your application to send it to the state for a FBI background  check (usually instant or a day at most)  and 5 business days after that to deny or approve

What town did you get your permit in? It is well known that some how some towns have no problem getting the permits processed and issued in the 8 week time frame or at least very close to it. Then there are other towns who just don't seem to be able to get it done.

Perhaps I was misinformed?
Pray tell, does “The Sky”=“The Limit” (with regard to those called) or does it resemble something of a bureaucratic Wild West?

Thank you for the info! :afro:

I know that Wilton called neighbors of a few customers and they called me on my own GF. That was a funny conversation.

When I applied ages ago, they asked about my neighbors, to which I replied I didnt know any of them. I dont know if they were called on me or not. Since I have almost always worked for myself, no employer to call.

Other customers have told me that they have had employers called.

How would the PD frame the impetus?

Implication being that I presume they’d not read in the “witnesses” on the catalyst being a CCW

When they called me on my GF, the detective just said they were doing a background check. Asked a few questions before I recognized the detective's voice. I told him who I was as he did not put it together right away, and said "look at the address" (she lived with me) the conversation ended and he said to tell her to come get her permit.

Well, it has been a lengthy 4 months. And in my defense, I had absolutely no idea the system was this damn clunky.

Hindsight is always 20/20; eh? :facepalm:

Surely someone here knows the “depth” if you will, of said ”Investigation(s)”?  :dunno:

For whatever it’s worth, I was of the understanding that it consists of lil if anything more than a Detective doing a search/background check.

The town has had four months since you submitted your application - they have had plenty of time to perform an "investigation"

Remember by law the WPD has to approve or deny your permit within five business days of receiving your background check back from the SFLU.  No excuses such as a clerk being on vacation or out sick are valid... 

The WPD has already broken the law by exceeding the 8 weeks.  The town has the discretion to approve your permit prior to hearing back from the SFLU in order to meet the 8 week deadline.  If the SFLU sends them an unfavorable background check result at a later date - the town simply revokes your permit

Would I not have to hire a lawyer to bleed my funds whiter than chalk? I’d literally have to pawn my seed &/or “Walk the Streets :-* / :eyejack: “ to accumulate the requisite cabbage.

#1 I am acquiring legal counsel.

#2 Incessantly harping on the thread length is counterproductive & consequently conducive to the chronic kerfuffle/clutterfest now plaguing the board. Any more of that & it’ll be off to the Gulag for the lot of ya! :undecided:
