Permits

As of January 2, 2020, permit applications submitted to the Police Department will be accepted through the City's new MyGovernmentOnline (MGO) permitting platform. Before you submit an application for the first time, you must create a user account. For more information about MGO, please visit the City’s Application Center.

All Police Department Permits require a separate business license with the exception of Block Party and Concealed Weapon (CCW) Permits. 

  • If you are an independent contractor to a business, you need a business license. 
  • If you are an employee, you do NOT need a business license.   

If you would like to speak with the permit office in person, an appointment is recommended. To make an appointment or if you need additional information, please call Cindy Campbell 408-866-2188 or e-mail CCampbell@campbellca.gov

For business license information, please contact the City Finance Department at (408) 866-2174.
