Firearm Applications

Applications for firearms are handled by the Office of the Chief of Police. This includes the initial Firearms Purchaser Identification Card, Application to Purchase a Handgun, changes of Address, and other related matter.

Applicants may pick up an application packet at the Police Records window Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Applications may also be obtained online, then completed and returned to Police Records during the provided office hours. Prompts for requested forms are listed below.

Applicable fees are required for certain applications. The specific fees that apply are provided in your information packet. These fees may be paid by cash, check, or money order payable to "Egg Harbor Township Police Department." Your method of payment must be in the exact amount. Change is not available.

Some applicants will be required to be fingerprinted for a criminal history background. Upon the submission of your completed firearm application, a form will be provided to the applicant on how to schedule an appointment with Morpho-Trust to submit to having fingerprints taken for the required New Jersey and F.B.I. background check.

At the conclusion of the background investigation, the applicant will be notified by mail on the status of the application.
