Sheriff Darin Balaam had this to say.
Let me be clear, there is no excuse for getting this far behind. We’ve let the people of Washoe County down and we have let ourselves down. As to how we got here, some of it is the fact that we closed Administrative Services down for ten weeks in 2020 due to COVID-19; some if it is getting used to working with new software and some of it is just the sheer increase in the number of people purchasing guns and applying for a CCW.
This is how you deal with and fix a crisis like this. 120 days is the deadline, not the goal. LVMPD needs to treat its citizen's right to armed self-defense seriously and put the manpower where it needs to be to get permits in people's hands faster. Either that or support constitutional carry in Nevada.
