Fees

As of July 1, 2021, individuals seeking a Lifetime Personal Protection license or a Five-Year Personal Protection license will only incur fees for electronic fingerprinting.

Electronic Fingerprinting

After completing the online application and before leaving the Indiana State Police (ISP) website, please schedule an appointment to be electronically fingerprinted. The Noblesville Police Department cannot provide fingerprinting for handgun licenses. You must schedule your appointment through ISP. There are a number of locations for you to select from. You will incur a fee at the fingerprinting location.

Local Background Check

After completing the ISP online application and your electronic fingerprinting, residents within Noblesville city limits should complete this on-line form. Your local background check will be completed utilizing information from this form and from your ISP application. The Noblesville Police Department will contact you by email once your background check has been completed and your application has been approved by the Noblesville Chief of Police. This usually takes two-to-three weeks from the time we receive your information. Please check your junk and spam folders if more than three weeks have passed. Once your application is approved, you will need to complete a form at the Noblesville Police Department. You will be asked to show a current driver’s license or identification  card at that time. Your approval will then be transmitted to ISP, and they will mail your license directly to the address listed on your application in approximately six-to-eight weeks.

If you reside  outside of Noblesville’s city limits, you will need to contact the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department or your local police department to complete your application process.

Please note: NPD local background checks are valid for 90 days.  If you fail to complete the local requirements within this time period, you’ll need to restart the local background process.
