Do I need to be fingerprinted to receive a firearm permit?

As of May 1, 2009, all applicants must be fingerprinted at a Sagem Morpho Site.  In order to schedule an appointment first you must fill out packet in its entirety  and return it to the Hamilton Police Division.  Applications can be obtained by clicking on the link to www.NJSP.ORG.

You will then receive a form for Sagem Morpho from the Police Division.  Your permit cannot be issued until all fingerprints are checked and returned to this office, and you are cleared through State and Federal Agencies.

The fee for fingerprinting is $60.25.  This fee is not necessary until you schedule your appointment.  The remaining fees are to be returned with your firearms application and other paperwork.  
For more information contact the Police Division, Gun Permits Section at (609) 581-4044 or 4045.
