PGPD Implementing online Firearms Registration System

Penns Grove Residents,

As of March 15, 2019, the Penns Grove Police Department will be implementing the Firearms Registration System, also known as FARS.

This is an online system for applications to Firearms Purchaser Identifications Cards and /or a Handgun Purchaser Permit. This will replace the current paper application process in which you were required to make application at our station. We are in the process of updating out Borough Website to provide a quick link to the information.

During this process you will be contacted by one of our officers if any additional information is needed.

Click the link below for instant access to the new FARS system and application process.

Should you have any questions feel free to contact Sgt. John Boucher or Detective Chris Hemple at 856-299-0056.


Chief John T Stranahan Sr.
