Apply now for firearm amnesty
The new firearm amnesty period will be from 1 August to 31 January
2021. It allows anyone with illegal or unwanted firearms and ammunition to hand them in at their nearest police station.
Capt Fadila September, spokesperson for Hermanus police, requests members of the public who wish to surrender their firearms to take along copies of their identity documents and firearm licences along with all ammunition when visiting the police station to hand in their firearms. They can be handed in from Mondays to Fridays, between 08:00 and 16:00.
“No firearms will be accepted over weekends,” September said. “We encourage firearm licence holders who wish to apply for amnesty not to wait until the last minute to apply.”
