I don’t think they can afford to keep anyone. It’s been my experience that they know everyone that gets arrested. Folks steal cars, go to jail, get out, steal a car to get home....Coastal counties in Oregon are welfare cases. Enviro policies saw to that. Municipalities may have fingerprint capabilities, but CCW permits are a county function.
Doesn't the local Sheriff run the county jail? I know they do in L.A. and Orange counties here in CA. Or, do the deputies take a suspect to the local police HQ for fingerprinting?
My point is that they can't fingerprint CCW applicants, but they can fingerprint criminal suspects.
Which is a variation on the old saw, 'justice delayed is justice denied."
