I know what a CLEO is, but how do I know WHO that is. Is it my county sheriff. My city's local PD?

I have found that it is either your county sherriff or his designated person. I would suggest calling your sherriff and ask to be sure.

Your state statutes probably spell this out. In my state it's the City or Town Chief of Police or, if you live in a Township, Plantation or unorganized territory, the County Sheriff.

If you live in a city it would be your local PD. If you live outside a city probably the county sheriff. Like previously posted who would you call if something happened.

Best scenario, knew a guy lived in a town of 1,000 people. had a police dept of 1 car and 2 people, deputy was his brother and chief of police a friend of the family.

Here's an easy way to find out... call 911. Whoever picks up is your LEO agency. Whoever is in charge of that agency is your CLEO.

Am I mistaken on this?

Wouldn't work around here; we have centralized 911.

It depends on state law. In North Carolina it is always the county sheriff, whether or not one lives inside or outside city limits.

In Virginia it can be a sheriff, police chief, or commonwealth's attorney.

I called my local city PD. They said it's them.

Yes you are mistaken for a couple of reasons.
Don't call 911 just to find out who answers the phone. 911 is for emergencies. It ties up the lines where if an actual emergency call is incoming it just delays response.
Many places have combined 911 answering. When a person calls the 911 center will determine if the call is from an incorporated area with their own PD or covered by other LE agencies.
Who the CLEO in your area will depend on how it's set up in your state. It could be the sheriff as the highest ranking elected LEO. Could be your county has a combined metro LEA and the chief is selected by a county board or other appointing agency.

The Gables.Who else?

Nah, it's Broward County. I'm only in the Gables for law school, so my apartment is temporary. I'm going to move to Brickell when the lease is up. So, I'm registering my C&R at my parent's place which is my permanent address.

Also, remember this... The copy of the C&R application you are giving him is a COURTESY copy. He does NOT have to take any action on it or start his own background check. Be sure he understands this. If the BATF needs anything from him, they will contact him...

Since the CLEO doesn't sign off on C&R FFLs and your letter to him is just a courtesy, why not just make two copies and send one to each.

Bases covered, everyone's happy, you're only out 42 cents.

hey everyone, similar topic but slightly different question: I went and got my stuff signed by the Chief of Police in my city and now where to I address to send my stuff to?! I cut my envelope open and am not sure it was even marked to be returned.

The BATFE address is on the back of the 2nd page of the FFL application.

You didn't need to get them to sign anything. It's up to them to contact BATFE if they think there's a reason not to issue the license.

zoom6zoom is correct. It is merely an informational courtesy to your local LEO. Nothing needs to be returned to the BATF by you.

When I sent my C&R app to my CLEO I marked that copy "FOR FILES ONLY- NO ACTION REQUIRED".

I've never heard anything from anyone after sending that copy to a CLEO, and I've done it three times now. At first I lived in an unincoprporated area so it went to the county sheriff. Then I moved the license into a city and had to send one to the chief of police of the city. Then we moved out of state and onto unincoporated land so the sheriff of this county got a copy.

Any time you want to change your "licensed premises" requires an application to relocate the license. It takes about the same amount of time as the initial application did as best I remember.

I'm on my fourth renewal - total of seven issuances in three addresses in two states. They must think I'm on the run. ;)

No big deal but you've got to have the block titled 'licensed premises' reflect your actual address.

Once I mail in my application (on Monday). How long can I expect the process to take until I am licensed?

It varies, but recently folks have said they are taking about three weeks.

My CLEO told me that they just throw away the notification letters. "Anyone who bothers to send it in probably isn't anyone we need to be worried about."
