BRONX, NEW YORK, June 15- The NYPD Community Affairs Bureau would like to ensure all citizens are aware of a critical program to take guns off the streets and to make our community a safer place.
The Cash for Guns Program is a program in which the New York City Police Department will pay $100 to any individual (excluding active law enforcement personnel and gun dealers) who present any handgun that is in apparent operative condition to any police precinct, transit district or housing police service area (PSA). To date over 6,000 deadly firearms have been surrendered since the program’s inception.
Qualifying weapons include: revolvers, semiautomatic and automatic pistols, sawed-off shotguns, or assault weapons. Weapons that do not qualify will be taken under the Cash for Guns Program, but will not qualify for the cash payment. An individual may surrender more than three weapons, but cash reimbursement will only be made for a maximum of a total of three weapons.
Any individual turning in a qualifying weapon may do so at any police precinct, transit district or housing PSA, 24-hours a day, seven days a week. No questions asked and no identification will be required, as the identity of all individuals will remain anonymous. While you may surrender the weapon at any of the above locations, cash payments will be made only from the following Patrol Borough Cash for Guns Central
