Numbers provided by state police officials show that of the tens of thousands of applications submitted so far, nearly 270 have been ultimately denied because of concerns raised by local police. That number represents a tiny fraction of the nearly 14,000 active permits in the state.
Some law enforcement officials, namely Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, had expressed concern that they wouldn't have the proper resources to cross-check all of the names on the application list. But a spokesman for the Illinois Police Association says they haven't heard any grumbling from local agencies since the program began.
