The completed forms need to be submitted to the Clerk’s Office of the Springfield Police Department.

The Peddler’s License and CORI form is combined into one file below and can be downloaded, printed, and filled out.

After the CORI report is received from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the application is submitted to the Police Commissioner for approval. Applicants will be notified by telephone and can obtain their documents for submission to the Commonwealth’s Director of Standards Office.

Approved applications may be mailed to the Director of Standards in Boston. The fee of $62.00 must accompany the approved application. The license is issued from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Director of Standards Office in Boston and not the Springfield Police Department.
