A background check will be processed for anyone claiming a firearm to ensure they are eligible to possess. Please be sure to provide a current, working phone number with voicemail capability in the event the Evidence Division needs to relay important information about your firearm appointment. Firearms will not be released without secure and verifiable ID. If you are attempting to authorize another individual to claim your firearm, they will need to present secure and verifiable ID, as well as a valid Power of Attorney or Notarized Statement. You may fax/email or hand deliver any documentation to the Evidence Division for advance review to ensure it meets all requirements for release.
Fill out the Application for Release of Firearm and email to Evidence Division.
Firearms and ammunition will not be released on the same day. You will need to make a separate appointment for the release of ammunition.
In some instances, firearms in Evidence Division custody may not be transferred to a third party based on the circumstances. Contact the Evidence Division for further information before attempting to transfer a firearm.
