Firearms amnesty this weekend

Tasmania Police will operate a mobile Police Station at the Granton Green Reserve this weekend to promote the state's permanent firearms amnesty. Anyone with an unwanted or unregistered firearm or ammunition can hand them over at the mobile police station for safe disposal.  Police officers can also provide advice about the appropriate storage requirements.

“We want to remind people who have unwanted firearms that Tasmania has a permanent amnesty for handing them to police or to a registered firearms dealer,” Detective Acting Inspector Craig Joel said.

The mobile police station will be set up at the Granton Green Reserve (the "train park") this weekend between 9am and 5pm.  There will be a designated parking area and people are asked to ensure their firearms are not loaded.

Information on unregistered firearms or firearm crime can be passed on to the police officers at the mobile station, or by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
