Effective February 18th 2019, The New Jersey State Police have implemented an online firearms application process, FARS, which stands for Firearms Application Registration System.

Please follow the below instructions for the new Firearms Application Registration System (FARS):

Step 1: Visit this website. You MUST enter the site address as follows:
https://www.njportal.com/NJSP/fars

Step 2: When you log on, you must enter the Secaucus Police Department’s ORI number: NJ0090900

Step 3: Complete the online application. Be sure to enter your “Official Name” (e.g. Joseph vs. Joe). You may complete the application using a smartphone, mobile device, laptop, or desktop computer.

Step 4: When you are finished completing your online application you will be prompted to print your confirmation, application, and Identogo fingerprint form, you must do so.

Tips
The new process is applicant driven. Please ensure that you have entered the best phone numbers for yourself and references as well as the best email addresses for yourself and references.

Please advise your references that the FARS system will email them the reference questions to be answered. Your references can complete the questions using a smartphone, mobile device, laptop, or desktop computer. Please advise them to complete the questions immediately to progress your background investigation.

You will be receiving automated email updates throughout this new process.

 ***Important note to applicant*** After you complete the application and hit the submit button, the Secaucus Police department will not have the ability to correct most mistakes made in the application, therefore, it is very important that prior to pressing the submit button, you carefully review the entire application for accuracy of all spelling of names, addresses, phone number, email addresses, detailed explanations to any questions with a “yes” answer, etc. prior to submission. In the event you submitted your application and mistakes or omitted information is discovered, you will be required to start over and reapply online.

This process does not apply to Permits to Carry.

 

IF YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR THE ONLINE APPLICATION (i.e.; permit to carry application) OR HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO COMPLETE YOUR APPLICATION UTILIZING THE PAPER METHOD, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS: Firearms Identification Registration
