FOID Card“Notice of Change” – Illinois State Police announced…

*Due to the following change the Bureau County Farm Bureau will no longer be offering FOID card services. We apologize for any inconvenience.*

The Illinois State Police (ISP) announced on March 6, 2015, the agency will now be accepting on-line FOID applications, to provide a more streamlined modernized application process. The ISP will no longer accept the FOID paper applications; however, like the CCL, the new FOID application will be available through the Department’s website at or through the paper alternative Call Center method, for those individuals who do not have computer access, by calling the ISP Firearms Services Bureau Call Center at 1-217-782-7980, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The ISP has also made changes to the login for both the CCL and the FOID applications. Applicants will no longer be required to obtain a state of Illinois digital I.D. through the Department of Central Management Services. This login change will allow users greater accessibility to the new application process. The new applicants and returning CCL applicants will need to register with the Illinois State Police by providing some key identifiers found on their Illinois Driver’s License or identification card, creating a username and password, and answering four security questions.
