The S.T.S. 033 Form is prescribed by the New Jersey State Police Superintendent for use by applicants for Firearms Purchaser I.D. Cards & Handgun Purchase Permits.


The online S.T.S. 033 Form should be used only after consultation with the Alpine Police Department for processing your firearm application. You must first obtain an Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) Number from the Alpine Police Department to complete this form (Alpine Police ORI - NJ0020200). Please ensure that the agency ORI number is correct on the form. If an incorrect ORI number is entered on the form, you will NOT receive a firearms ID card or a permit to purchase. You will then have to re-apply using the correct ORI number and pay for the process again. A refund can not be issued.



1) All applicants must apply for Firearms ID Cards and Permit to Purchase a Handgun online only via the Firearms Application and Registration System @ (select).


2) If you have never been fingerprinted before for firearms purposes, you will need to go for fingerprinting with the Universal Fingerprint Form that will be generated after successful submission of this form.


3) If you have been fingerprinted before for firearm purposes, upon completion of this form and payment, you would have completed both S.T.S 033 and 212A requirements.

After all required information is entered, a review page appears where the applicant can make edits into the application prior to the final submission.  Once submitted the application is unable to be altered.  When complete, the applicant must print out the application form, fingerprint form and confirmation page. 


Payment shall be in the form of a Cash, Check or Money Order.  Check or Money Order shall be issued to “Borough of Alpine”.
