During the month of April, the Brantford Police Service participated in a Provincial
Community Safety Initiative that provided citizens an easy and safe way to surrender
unwanted firearms and ammunition for destruction. As a result, a total of 43 firearms
(including one handgun, 22 rifles and 20 replicas) and 1,359 rounds of ammunition were turned into police for safe disposal.
The aim of the gun amnesty program is to improve public safety by reducing the number
of firearms in our community. The Brantford Police Service would like to remind people
that they can still call the non-emergency line anytime at 519-756-7050 to make
arrangements for the disposal of unwanted firearms/replicas or ammunition – but are
asked not to take items to the police station. Information will be collected over the phone
and a Community Patrol Officer will contact people with details.
