Detective Chief Superintendent Mary Doyle said:

“Too many lives have been torn apart by gun crime and it is no exaggeration to say every weapon retrieved via the surrender has the potential to save a life.

“The surrender offers you an opportunity to dispose of your weapon safely and discreetly whether it is a gun that has been handed down through the family or a firearm in your loft collecting dust.

“You won’t have to give your name or address, we just want more guns out of harm’s way. Please do the right thing for the sake of all the families that have had their lives destroyed by firearms.”

For more information or to report gun crime, please contact us on 101. In an emergency, please dial 999.
