Advice on handing in firearms to Police.

As the Prime Minister announced, anybody wanting to surrender their firearms to Police is welcome to do so.

Due to heightened security and the current environment, we would ask that people please call us first before attempting to surrender a firearm.

You can contact your local Police station or your local arms officer to get advice on the safe transport of the firearm to Police. This will also enable our staff to be aware of your arrival ahead of time.
