As of January 1, 2011 the New Jersey State Police will no longer accept the conventional “ink and roll” fingerprint cards. The BHPD will no longer perform this service as of December 15, 2010. All fingerprinting for firearms applications, real estate licenses, and other non-criminal matters will be done digitally by Sagem-Morpho. Persons who need to be fingerprinted for these reasons must obtain a form from police headquarters and make an appointment with Sagem-Morpho. There will be a nominal fee for this service, which is payable at the time the impressions are taken.




Applications for firearms permits are available during the records secretary’s hours, in person only, at police headquarters. Applicants must first obtain a fingerprinting form from police headquarters and make an appointment with Sagem-Morpho. For further information regarding firearms applications and associated fees, contact SFC William Hoffman at (732) 892-0632.
