Congrats on the pink slip!
Completed online application in the late hours of Friday night May 29th including scheduling and paying for electronic fingerprints. Monday June 1st 4:00 pm electronic fingerprints taken at county sheriffs office. Tuesday June 2nd 7:45 am Paid local fee at city police department. Tuesday June 2nd 3:00 pm online status was approved. Monday June 8th received pretty pink card in the mail. 9 days start to finish.
Without going into detail I was prepared for a long wait. I've never been convicted of any crime that doesn't mean I don't have an arrest record that would take a while to read. Granted, all that was 21-24 years ago in a state far away. I expected some phones to ring and dust blown off of files and such. I would be surprised of some of those locations are up to date with technology. The last time I was through one of them last year they was actually getting a convenience store, across from the feed store, next to the baptist church, at the flashing yellow light. Heck when I was younger that place was just getting that flashing yellow light and it was the talk of the community. That was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and was later straightened out. But the arrest is still there as are the others ones from that time in my life. But as the law states no convictions , pay the fee, resident of the state , US citizen and answer all questions 100% truthfully and you get your permit. No questions about any arrests in my life.
Now my local departments I think two things came into play. One is when I went to city police department to pay local fee the lady that runs the office window and takes care of all the was 45 minuets late and felt terrible that I waited for 45 minuets. I was at the window at 6:59, they open at 7:00am. The second is I'm in my mid 40's and sport the gray hair Ive earned and deserve on my chin and head. At both locations I had on my work shirt. I work for a very large and well know manufacturing facility in Frankfort. Why do I think that mattered? When my 21 year old 6'6 240lb son applied for his it took almost three months.. Hmmmmmmm

Took myself and my wife exactly 1 week to the day from when we paid our local fees. Don't know if it's different for us because we have to go to the Sheriff dept since we live outside the city limits.
It's nice to see it isn't taking 3 to 4 months anymore.
She's also a former correctional officer and I'm currently a Sergeant at New Castle Correctional Facility and was a police reserve for a couple years. Idk if they look at stuff like that or not because I know retired correctional officers get a discount.
Not sure but I bet it didn't hurt having that kind of background. I've never had any criminal history never been put in cuffs and it took 9 days to approval, 12 days to the mail.
