Firearms Licensing shall be completed through a mail-in process.  Please DO NOT come to the station to apply for your license at this time.

The following guidelines will assist you in submitting your application via US Mail:

  • New license applicants should download the Massachusetts Resident Firearms Application located at the bottom of this page
  • New applicants are required to take a Massachusetts Firearms Safety Course.  Upon completion of the safety course applicants will be issued a certificate which will be required documentation for the firearms license application.
  • New license applicants will be required to come to the YPD (AT A LATER TIME) to complete fingerprints.  We will continue to process your application until such time that fingerprints can be obtained post COVID-19 restrictions.
  • Renewal applicants will not require new fingerprints.
  • The fee for applications is $100.00, unless you are over 70 years of age.  If you are over 70 years of age, and this is a renewal the application is free. A check or money order is acceptable, made payable to TOWN OF YARMOUTH.
  • All applicants should mail their completed application form and your firearms safety certificate (if applicable), to:

Yarmouth Police Department

  • Please be sure to include a check or money order for the licensing fee in the amount of $100.
  • Also include your email address so that Records Staff can contact you with any questions and make arrangements for an appointment to obtain fingerprints.
  • A receipt of the transaction will be mailed to you.
  • For persons that renew their licenses BEFORE they expire, the transaction receipt will keep your current license active until the new one is either approved or denied.
