Halton Police Service to Participate in Gun Amnesty Program in April

Halton Police Service to Participate in Gun Amnesty Program in April

The Halton Regional Police Service will take part in a province-wide Gun Amnesty program during the month of April which will allow any Halton resident to voluntarily surrender unwanted or illegally-owned firearms, weapons, accessories or ammunition.

Led by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), in collaboration with many municipal police services across the province, the amnesty program is a way to provide citizens with a safe way to surrender weapons and enhance public safety.

Starting April 1, 2018 police will not proceed with weapons-related Criminal Code charges that might otherwise apply to people who are turning in these items as long as they have not been used in the commission of a crime. No anonymous submissions will be accepted.

Interested gun owners can call Halton Regional Police Service’s non-emergency number at 905-825-4747 ext. 8733 to arrange for officers to attend and safely retrieve the weapons.

Under NO circumstances should anyone deliver guns or ammunition directly to any police station.
