Victoria Police is in the process of contacting about 2500 firearm licence holders who may have been overcharged or undercharged for firearm licence fees.
An internal review conducted by the Licensing and Regulation Division has identified an error in the application of firearm licence fees for licence holders who hold a Category A or Category A/B licence at the same time as a Category C longarm licence.
Superintendent Paul Millett from the Licensing and Regulation Division said the error had not resulted in anyone having a licence without the correct assessment for genuine need and suitability being completed.
This is a human error that has gone unnoticed for a long period of time, Supt Millett said.
It was not recognised through regular internal and external audits. www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp? Document_ID=47762
