Gun Amnesty – Cobourg Police

In Police Blotter

Gun Amnesty Program Runs From April 01-30, 2018

The Cobourg Police Service, in collaboration with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), is cooperating in providing a Gun Amnesty program during 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 Gun Amnesty will apply to any documented or undocumented firearms, and other weapons and accessories. Police Services will also accept any amount of unwanted ammunition.

The Amnesty is a way to provide citizens with a safe way to surrender weapons and enhance public safety by reducing the number of firearms in our communities. 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. No anonymous submissions will be accepted.

Interested gun owners are strongly urged to call the Cobourg Police Service non-emergency number at 1-905-372-6821 OR the OPP non-emergency number at 1-888-310-1122 in order to arrange for officers to attend and safely retrieve the weapons.

Gun owners can also use the OPP website button — www.opp.ca/gunamnesty — or the Citizen Self Reporting tool to notify police.

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