Brockville Police are joining an O.P.P. led gun amnesty initiative for the month of April.
The Gun Amnesty is for any Ontario resident who wishes to voluntarily surrender unwanted or illegally-owned firearms, weapons, accessories or ammunition.
The Amnesty is a way to provide citizens with a safe way to surrender weapons and enhance public safety. During the Amnesty, Police will not recommend weapons-related Criminal Code charges that might otherwise apply to people who are turning in these items.
*Please note there is no Amnesty offered for people who turn in weapons that have been used in the commission of a crime. You will not be permitted to surrender items anonymously.
Beginning in April those persons in Brockville wishing to turn in any firearms, weapons, accessories, or ammunition are asked to call the police non-emergency number at 613-342-0127 and arrangements will be made for an officer to safely retrieve the items. Outside of the City you can contact the O.P.P. at 1-888-310-1122.
