ABC Unit
  The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is responsible for the following ABC permits:
Local Government Opinion Form: 
The following attachment outlines what documents we require to process this form and what an applicant can expect during the investigation. This form needs to be submitted 15 days prior to the event date. 
Special One Time Permit:  
You must submit all of the required documents listed on the Special One Time Permit application.  CMPD is responsible for signing this application stating that we have been notified of your event.  This form may take up to 7 business days to process.  Please be sure the factor that time in when submitting your paperwork, as the ABC Commission requires the completed application be submitted at least 14 days prior to your event.
Temporary Extension Permit: 
CMPD must receive the Temporary Extension permit to sign and a diagram showing the extension of premises.

All requests are to be dropped off at CMPD Headquarters at 601 E. Trade Street at the rotunda.  Local Government Opinion Forms and Permits are assigned to Officers based on geographical location.
