SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — People with a FOID card or concealed carry license are now able to receive messages via email or text message instead of waiting for a letter in the mail.

The Illinois State Police (ISP) Firearms Services Bureau (FSB) announced the new option on Monday, saying the process should make things easier for the public.

“The Illinois State Police Firearms Services Bureau is working diligently to ensure the statutory changes to the FOID Act will benefit the people of Illinois,” said ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly.  “This opt out option will make it easier and quicker for the public to receive notifications regarding their FOID card and/or CCL.”

Cardholders who would prefer the method of email or text notifications can register online here.
