Police Scotland – Fire Arms Surrender: Protecting the Community

gunOrkney Police are participating in the latest campaign by Police Scotland. Anyone with fire arms which they do not have a valid certificate for can  surrender them to Kirkwall Police Station.

Members of the public can also hand over:

  • replica firearms
  • air weapons
  • BB guns
  • imitation firearms
  • component parts
  • other ballistic items

Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins, of Police Scotland, said:

“Protecting the public sits at the heart of everything we do and the purpose of the Firearms Surrender Campaign is to remove firearms from criminal availability, thereby reducing the risk of harm to the public and our communities.

“Similarly if people still have unwanted air weapons that are unlicensed, or have come across old firearms while clearing out a house, these can be surrendered during the campaign.

“We want to reassure the public that all reasonable steps are being taken to reduce the amount of illegally held firearms within the public arena.”

James Wolffe QC, Lord Advocate  said:

“Anybody surrendering a firearm or other relevant item during Police Scotland’s two week campaign will not be prosecuted for simple possession of the item. The immunity only applies to handover of the weapon and not to any other offence it may be linked to after examination.”

The amnesty runs until Sunday 1st of July 2018

Police Stations across Scotland are participating.
