Please Note: We now have information regarding the five year renewal that has been implemented by the New York State Police. The State Police advise that they will be sending out letters starting on January 3, 2017 regarding your renewal. Please make sure your address that is listed with our agency is correct.

The letters will be sent out in a staggered fashion so your neighbor or friend may get one today and yours could arrive some time later.  You will need to fill out the information online at https://firearms.troopers.ny.gov/pprecert/welcome.faces
or by printing out the form and mailing the form to the State Police.
