Procedure to Obtain a Firearm from Police Custody
In order for a law enforcement agency to return a firearm to its owner, the owner must first complete an application for a determination by the Department of Justice as to whether he or she is eligible to possess a firearm. This Law Enforcement Gun Release Application is available online at the California Department of Justice website. The application form provides instructions on how to obtain a firearms clearance and the required fees.
When the firearm eligibility check has been completed, both the applicant and the custodial law enforcement agency are notified by mail of the eligibility check results. If the eligibility check is approved, the applicant must provide a copy of the approval notice to the law enforcement agency at the time of release.
Release of property at the Montclair Police Department is by appointment only. To make an appointment with the Evidence Clerk, call (909) 448-3651.
