Prohibited firearms and parts collection event in Waipukurau
Police will hold a prohibited firearms and parts collection event in Waipukurau on Thursday 10 October.
The event is being held at Central Hawke's Bay College, 45 Tavistock Road, from 2pm-5pm.
Police encourage any firearm holders who have yet to participate to hand-in their items at this collection event.
For any firearm holders who prefer to hand-in their firearm/s and/or part/s at a dealer, over 40 Police-approved licensed dealers can accept these – a list of participating dealers and their contact details is on the Police website.
Please note that hand-in at dealers ends in mid-November, so be sure to book your hand-in at an approved dealer via their website as soon as possible.
The firearms amnesty and buy-back ends on 20 December 2019.
There will be no compensation after this date for those handing in their firearm/s or part/s for buy-back, and possessing a prohibited firearm will be an offence.
