South River police continue to process firearms applications


Share post:

SOUTH RIVER – Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the intent of the South River Police Department is to process as many firearm applications as it can.

Residents can still initiate the online application process and police will continue to process those applications; however, due to limiting person-to-person contact and police headquarters being closed to the public during the current public health emergency, the final steps of the process may be delayed.

The final steps of the process include picking up, signing for and rendering payment for purchase permits and/or FID cards.

In addition, first time applications will be delayed indefinitely due to the closure of contracted fingerprint locations. This portion of the process will continue as soon as non-essential businesses are allowed to reopen.
