Between October 19 and October 26, 2015, the Halton Regional Police Drug, Gun and Gang Unit ran a week long amnesty for residents to get rid of unwanted weapons. Officers responded to pick up requests from citizens around the region, looking to surrender and dispose of firearms, weapons and ammunition.

A list of items turned into police is as follows:

  1. 55 rifles
  2. 14 shotguns
  3. 27 pellet handguns
  4. 22 pellet rifles
  5. 17 handguns
  6. 2 starter pistols
  7. 1 one-handed crossbow
  8. 10 knives
  9. 250 pounds of ammunition

It is evident our communities in Halton are that much safer due to the partnership between the community and police. 135 total weapons capable of firing some form of projectile are no longer available for opportunistic thieves.

We would like to thank the residents for participating in this safety initiative and look forward to providing this opportunity next year.
