Surrey and Sussex Police are supporting a national firearms surrender which takes place later this month.
People in possession of unwanted guns or ammunition are encouraged to hand them to their local police station. During the surrender period, those surrendering firearms will not face prosecution for illegal possession of a firearm at the point of surrender, and they can remain anonymous. Police may investigate firearms offences should any come to light, once the operation has concluded. The surrender is part of a national campaign by the National Ballistics Intelligence Service. The aim of the operation is to reduce the number of illegally held firearms in circulation that could fall into the hands of criminals.
The campaign runs from Monday 20th July to Sunday 4th August when items can be handed in to front counter staff at designated police stations.
Crawley Police station from Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 8 pm.
Horsham police station from Monday to Friday between 10 am to 2 pm and again from 3 to 6 pm.
Reigate Police station from Monday to Sunday from 8 am to 10 pm.
