Licenses & Permits

The Maine State Police are responsible for issuing a variety of licenses ranging from concealed handgun permits to non-profit gaming licenses.  You will find information regarding these programs in this area of our website.


Effective August 1st 2017 all program responsibility for non-profit gaming (beano and games of chance) will be transferred to the Gambling Control Unit (GCU).  All matters previously handled by the Maine State Police will be handled by the GCU.  This includes the licensing, registration and administrative paperwork associated with non-profit gaming (beano and games of chance) in addition to any questions or complaints.  Please click on the link below to be forwarded to GCU’s website for additional information.
