Firearms collection events will be held in Tairāwhiti in September, providing firearm owners an opportunity to hand in
their prohibited firearm/s and parts for buyback.
It’s also a chance for anyone to hand in any firearm – no questions asked – under amnesty.
If you hand in firearm/s under amnesty no personal details will be recorded as the amnesty is entirely anonymous.
If you do want to hand in firearm/s or parts for buyback, please complete the online form here before coming to an event
– including listing each firearm and/or each individual part you are bringing along.
The details of the events are:
Thursday 12 September: Morere Hall, Nuhaka, from 5pm-7.30pm
Friday 13 September: Gisborne Cosmo Club, from 1pm-6pm
Saturday 14 September: Uawa Sports Club, Tolaga Bay, from 10am-1.30pm
Sunday 15 September: Ruatoria RSA, from 10am-1.30pm
Police want to thank the firearms community for their positive response to the collection events so far, and look
forward to welcoming the Tairāwhiti firearms community to a collection event.
