Firearms Permits/Applications/Information

Due to a high volume of applicants, permits can no longer be processed on a walk-in basis. If you are seeking a renewal or new permit please follow these steps:

  1. Call the Barre Police Department at (978) 355-5005.
  2. Ask to speak with Amy Reed regarding a firearms permit.
  3. If you are not put in direct contact with Amy Reed you will be automatically directed to menu options.  Enter extension #500 and leave a detailed message.  Please do so and be as specific as possible regarding your request.  
  4. A member of the department will call you back and schedule an appointment.. Failure to allow adequate time for a renewal is not considered to be a hardship.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment have all of the forms completed and bring the necessary fees.
  6. Once you have been processed there will be a wait period while your information is checked through national law enforcement databases.  This could take up to three months.
