The process for obtaining an FID or LTC can be confusing! Follow these steps if you're interested in applying. Printed applications can be found at the MPD front desk. If you would like to print your own form, find the appropriate one below and download it from the link provided. Then, submit the following at MPD to the attention of the Front Desk staff:
- a $100 check made payable to the "Town of Mansfield."
(You do not need a safety certificate for a renewal).
Once you have submitted your application packet, go to OUR SCHEDULING SITE (click here) and chose a date and time that works for you to come in and get your picture and fingerprints taken. After that, your application will be approved/denied by the Chief and sent to the Commonwealth for processing.
Currently, you can expect a wait time of approximately four months between the time when you drop off your application and you receive your new card. For renewals, we advise that you drop off your application 1-2 months prior to the expiration of your current LTC.
MPD has a limited supply of gun locks available for pickup for FREE at the Front Desk. Locks will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit two locks per person. Please keep everyone safe and lock your firearms!
