The Woodstown Police Department accepts firearms applications for Firearms Purchaser Identification Cards and Pistol Purchase Permits electronically via the Firearms Application & Registration System (FARS).

The website below will allow an applicant to apply for Initial and Duplicate Firearms Purchaser Identification Cards and Permits to Purchase a Handgun.

The ORI number for Woodstown Borough is NJ0171500. This ORI number should be used by Woodstown Borough residents only. Residents of Pilesgrove should contact the New Jersey State Police. 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.

Also, please do not submit additional applications through the FARS system while you already have an application pending. For example if you realize a mistake was made, or realize that you would like additional permits. Contact the police department and we can resolve the issue.

If you have questions, you may contact the police department at 856-769-1330. Please DO NOT contact us to ask if you application is ready. An officer will contact you when the process is complete. If you have technical or payment-related issues, contact the New Jersey e-Government Services Help Desk at 609-586-2600
