In an effort by the Manchester Township Police Department to create safer communities, residents will have the opportunity to voluntarily turn in firearms that they no longer want. Please note that this is NOT a buyback, “no questions asked” event.
Guns left lying around the home are a common source of tragedy. This Gun Turn-In event provides a way for citizens to dispose of unwanted firearms before a tragedy occurs. A gun that is turned in can never be stolen in a burglary and used later in a violent crime, and it can never fall into the hands of a curious child and cause the death of that child, a friend, or some other innocent person.
Guns brought to the event MUST be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gun-box, securely tied package, and locked in the trunk of your vehicle during transit to the event.
Anyone wishing to turn-in an unwanted gun must contact Detective Adam Guker at 732-657-2009 Ext 4210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
Appointment times are as follows:
-November 28, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Manchester Township Police Headquarters
-November 28, 2018, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., to be picked up at a residence (for those who may not have transportation)
-November 28, 2018, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Manchester Township Police Headquarters.
This program is by appointment only.
