Suffolk Police’s Firearms Licensing Unit is responsible for the issue of certificates, permits and advice for firearms, shotguns and explosives.


Applications for the grant of new certificates are being accepted.  These applications must be submitted with the required medical proforma, incomplete applications will not be accepted and will be returned.

Where applications have been made, applicants should be aware they will experience long delays in the processing of these applications due to the unprecedented workload and the effects of the pandemic.  We cannot give a time for completion of a new grant application and ask that you do not contact the Firearm Licensing Unit to check on the status of your application.
