The Halton Regional Police Service has completed their month-long firearms and ammunition amnesty.
Between April 1 and April 30, 2018, the following items were turned in to the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) as a result of this amnesty:
Additionally, several thousands of rounds of ammunition were turned in to HRPS.
The regional amnesty program, part of a province-wide program, provided the community with the option of handing over unwanted or illegal guns, ammunition or explosives, without any criminal penalties. Getting unwanted weapons into the hands of law enforcement, who can then oversee their lawful destruction, prevents them from falling into the hands of criminals.
Community safety is a shared responsibility and we thank the residents of Halton for their participation in this successful amnesty.
