Firearms Applications
The Haddonfield Police Detective Bureau is responsible for handling firearms applications and firearms investigations.

Rifles & Shotguns
Residents age 18 or older can apply for a New Jersey Firearms ID Card. This allows the bearer to purchase shotguns and rifles in the State of New Jersey and allows them to transport those weapons to and from gun ranges following the guidelines in NJS 2C:39-6g. (http://www.state.nj.us/njsp/about/fire_ag2.html) To apply, you must be:

  • 18 years old or older
  • be of good character in the community in which you live
  • never been convicted of a crime or disorderly persons offense involving an act of domestic violence
  • not be dependant on drugs/alcohol
  • not be confined for a mental disorder
  • not suffer from a physical defect or disease which would make it unsafe to handle a firearm
  • not be subject to a domestic violence restraining order
  • no criminal record as adult or juvenile involving unlawful use or possession of a weapon

To apply, download the form from the link below or pick up an application (STS-33) from your local police department. Fill out the form, sign and date it. You will also need to fill out the mental health release form (SP-66). The detective bureau will review the forms and give you instructions on getting fingerprinted by the State vendor, Sagem Morpho. There will be a fee of $60.25 which is collected by Sagem Morpho. The Chief of Police determines if the card should be issued, based on NJS 2C:58-3c. Once the card is issued, there is a $5.00 fee collected from the person (cash, check, money order).

If you need to change your address, your name or replace a lost Firearms ID Card, there is a different application (STS-3). You can download the form from the link below or pick one up at the police department. Fill out the form along with the mental health release form (SP-66) and a criminal history release form (SBI-212A). Get a money order, made out to the New Jersey State Police SBI Unit in the amount of $18.00. Personal checks, certified checks will not be accepted.

Residents may also apply for a handgun permit in addition to the Firearms ID card. A handgun permit is needed for each and every handgun purchased. While the firearms ID card does not expire, the handgun permit is only good for 90 days. You may apply for the handgun permit at the time you apply for the Firearms ID Card or you may apply for a handgun permit at any time after you receive your Firearms ID card. The same application ((STS-33) is used for both. You must be age 21 or older to receive a handgun permit. There is a $2.00 fee collected for each handgun permit once they are issued.

Forms and additional information can be viewed and downloaded at: http://www.state.nj.us/njsp/info/forms.html#firearms

REMEMBER: NJS 2C:58-15 makes it illegal to leave a loaded firearm accessible to a minor.

Auxiliary Police

Haddonfield Auxiliary Police Officers are trained, non-paid volunteers, whose mission is to augment the Haddonfield Police Department. Their ranks include moms and dads, business owners and executives, and other Borough residents who are committed to making a safer community. In 2007 the Auxiliary Police were honored with the Alfred E. Driscoll Award for outstanding community service. Each year Auxiliary Officers provide almost 1,000 hours of volunteer service. They function as court bailiffs, and direct traffic at town events such as Fire Prevention Night and the Fall Festival. Members also provide crowd control at high school football and basketball games, numerous parades and 1st Night Celebration. Auxiliary Officers also carry out uniformed, foot and bicycle patrol in the business district during Candle Light Shopping; summer-time Friday night concerts; and furnish security for the summer Craft Fair. Auxiliary Officers are trained to respond to local emergencies, natural disasters and assist the Camden County Fire Police.

Meetings Open to the Public
Auxiliary members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30PM in the Haddonfield Court Room. All Borough residents are invited to attend.

Various training seminars are conducted by qualified members of the Haddonfield Police Department. Some officers take optional classes at the Camden County Police Academy. All officers are instructed in basic law enforcement protocol, radio communications, police vehicle operations, self defense, and baton and pepper spray tactics. Officers also remain current with their first-aid and CPR certifications.

Members are expected to provide eight combined hours of service/training per month. In order to become an Auxiliary Officer you must be 18 years of age, have graduated high-school, be physically able to perform the duties of an Auxiliary Police Officer, and pass a background check. The Chief of Police has final say in appointing Auxiliary Officers. If you are interested in becoming an Auxiliary Police Officer, talk to any of our members, visit us at one of our meetings, or contact Community Police Officer, Lt. Ted Stuessy at 856-429-4700 ext. 240.
