    Tell us when you are out of town, and we'll periodically check up on your property for you.


    To obtain a firearms license, first click the above link and fill in the application. Then, bring the completed application, along with a check payable to the Town of Wales for $100, to the Police Department during posted hours. Photos provided at no charge.

    We now have the MIRCS (Massachusetts Instant Records Checks System) computerized version of LTC process.

    Note: If applying for your permit for the first time, a safety certificate from MA approved instructor is required by Massachusetts General Law.

    Wales Sex Offender Information


    We currently have one Level 3 Offender and one Level 2 Offender living in Wales.

    Level 3 offenders are disseminated by statute under Meghan's Law to the public when the offender is classified. Level 2 Offenders are available upon request from the Chief of Police. There is a form available for such a request and there are standards that have to be met in order for the request to be disseminated. For more information, use the link below to the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board 's information page.
