Amnesty for firearms to be held by the police force

Northamptonshire Police will be launching a gun amnesty next week.

It will run from Monday, September 15 to Sunday, September 28.

The event is designed to give people the chance to surrender unlawfully held guns, ammunition, replica guns or air weapons. People will also be able to surrender lawfully held items they no longer want as well.

Inspector Sarah Johnson, who will lead the amnesty, said: “This is all about our work to make Northamptonshire the safest place in the country.”

Anyone wanting to hand over items should call 101 and request an appointment.
