The Thunder Bay Police Service in collaboration with provincial law enforcement agencies is 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. Gun Amnesty does not begin before April 1, 2018.*

Interested gun owners in Thunder Bay are strongly urged to call the Thunder Bay Police Service non-emergency line at 684-1200 or email www.thunderbaypolice.ca/contact to arrange for officers to attend and safely retrieve the weapons.

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