The Regina Police Service would like to thank the citizens of Regina who participated in our Firearms Amnesty Program.
From February 1st – 15th, 2017, Regina residents were encouraged to contact the Regina Police Service to surrender their unwanted firearms, replica firearms, and ammunition. Police Service members picked up unwanted firearms, ammunition and other weapons from the homes of residents who wished to surrender them. During that time period, no charges were laid in relation to the unauthorized possession or careless storage of these firearms.
The Regina Police Service seized the following during this initiative:
- Ammunition: 59 Exhibits
- Knives: 4
- Misc Gun related items: 4
- Pellet/Air/Starter Pistols: 21
- Restricted/Prohibited Firearms: 25
- Rifles: 81
- Shotguns: 30
Total Firearms: 157
Thanks again to the citizens of Regina who called us to turn in their unwanted firearms over the past two weeks! The amnesty period is now over, however, those wishing to surrender a firearm are still encouraged to contact police.
