I just got my CCHP today! I applied for it at the Wake County Sheriff's Department in Raleigh on January 21, 2011, after having succesfully completed an 8-hour CCHP Class in Fuquay-Varina. The clerk at the Sheriff's Department told me it would take ten weeks. Turns out she was not kidding. It took me 82 days (approx. 11 weeks) to receive it -- in the mail. I had been told by a friend that they called him and he had to go pick it up at the Sheriff's office. I guess they have changed their policy, and people get it in the mail now. Anyways, I just wanted to let my experience be known to anyone else in Wake County who is waiting for the CCHP or is thinking of applying for one.
