WNPS PARTICIPATING IN PROVINCIAL GUN AMNESTY DURING APRIL

Safely surrender weapons and accessories by appointment only. The West Nipissing Police Service (WNPS) in collaboration with the Ontario Provincial Police and participating Municipal Police Services are holding a Gun Amnesty 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 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. *Police 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 WNPS AT (705) 753-1234 to arrange for officers to attend and safely retrieve the weapons.

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