HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Hanover Township Police Department can accept applications for new and replacement Firearms ID cards and permits to purchase a handgun. Click here for online application.
The site asks for our ORI number. That number is: NJ0141200
Please double check the agency name is Hanover Township Police. If you submit the application to the incorrect police agency you will not receive a refund from the state and will have to reapply.
We continue to accept personally delivered applications at the Records window, located at 1000 Jefferson Road, Whippany.
The S.T.S. 033 Form is prescribed by the Superintendent for use by applicants for Firearms Purchaser I.D. Cards & Handgun Purchase Permits.
The online S.T.S. 033 Form should be used only after consultation with your local Police Department or the State Police Barracks responsible for processing your firearm application. You must first obtain an Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) Number from the licensing department to complete this form. Please ensure that the agency ORI number is correct on the form. If an incorrect ORI number is entered on the form, you will NOT receive a firearms ID card or a permit to purchase. You will then have to re-apply using the correct ORI number and pay for the process again. A refund can not be issued.
If you have never been fingerprinted before for firearms purposes, you will need to go for fingerprinting with the Universal Fingerprint Form that will be generated after successful submission of this form. However, if you have been fingerprinted before for firearm purposes, upon completion of this form and payment, you would have completed both S.T.S 033 and 212A requirements.
