- Crime

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.”
