Crime Prevention Advice - Firearms Amnesty
If you are in possession of a firearm that the NZ Government has recently legislated against and want to surrender your firearm to police, contact our call centre on 0800 311 311 between 7am and 10pm or go to the NZ Police website at: www.police.govt.nz where you can complete an online form. Police will contact you to arrange surrender through the proper processes. Further information in regard to the type of firearms, buy-back compensation and the six month amnesty surrender period can be found on the website.
Get it sorted now before the amnesty period ends. Compensation will no longer be an option and prosecution is likely if you’re still in possession of an unlawful firearm after the amnesty.
