Gun Registrations & Purchase Permits
To apply for a purchase permit, you must be a Redford resident with valid photo ID and not have a Concealed Pistol License (CPL). Beginning April 1, 2012 the cost is $10 for the mandatory background check. You will also need a second form of identification – either a vehicle registration or voter registration with your current Redford address. For other acceptable forms, please contact the Records Bureau at (313) 387-2531.
If you have a valid concealed Pistol License (CPL), you will need a sales record instead of a purchase permit. You may pick this up at no cost.
You can apply for a purchase permit or pick up a sales record Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, excluding holidays, between the hours of 8:00am to 1:00pm and 2:00pm to 4:00pm

The Redford Township Police Department will begin utilizing a new service to access important, valuable community information when you need it, using the latest technology.
Our agency will create and publish messages through the Nixle Community Information Service. Nixle will then deliver this information to you instantly via text, email and/or web message. Notifications can also be accessed online at Nixle's web site at www.nixle.com.
Example messages may include snow emergencies, crime alerts, and changes to trash pick ups, as well as other relevant safety and community information.
The service is secure, reliable and easy for our group to use. YOU decide what information you want and whether you want it sent to your cell phone, email, or just simply over the web.
Please register now at the company's main web site: www.nixle.com. Look for the Redford Township Police. There you can also access their Frequently Asked Questions.
We also ask you to forward this email to 5 of your neighbors or friends in the community, encouraging them to register.
New communication forms continue to evolve and we believe this service will allow us to keep you informed in the most convenient, reliable way possible.
