Firearms Procedures Have Changed
Release Date: January 06, 2017

COMPLETED FIREARMS APPLICATIONS CAN NOW BE DROPPED OFF AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS AT ANY TIME

The Firearms application packet can be accessed by clicking on "FORMS" at the top of this page, scrolling down to "Firearms Forms," and clicking on "Firearms Forms & Completion Instructions." All forms in the Firearms Packet are interactive and can be completed right on your computer, printed out, and then signed.  It is recommended that all firearms paperwork is completed in this manner as it reduces delays caused by illegible handwriting.
 
Completed Firearms applications can now be dropped off any time.  Please review your application carefully before dropping it off, as incomplete applications will not be processed and will result in delays.  All forms should be signed, and all applications must include a copy of your driver's license and firearms ID card.

Filing fees are as follows:
Pistol permit: $2/per permit
Firearms ID card (initial or duplicate): $5

Check or exact change is required.  Fees for your permit(s)/ID card are paid when you come to pick up your paperwork.  Do not attach fees to your application paperwork when you drop it off.

If you need to make alternate arrangements or have any other questions, please contact Detective Sergeant Sean Krater at 973-208-6148.
