There are many ways to surrender.

The most difficult of which is to disarm and hand over your military-grade weapons and ammunition. This is the first step in surrendering your legal rights to own these weapons.


Do not sell your firearms. They must be destroyed – not recirculated.

How to safely surrender your firearms and ammunition.

Call ahead and let officers know you have items to surrender. Be sure to supply them your name and contact info as well as information on any weapons you are taking in.

If you know how to safely unload the firearm before taking it into the precinct, please do so. They can also dispose of any unused ammunition.

Please do not bring a visible firearm into the precinct – place it in a bag or box. Tell the officer at the front desk that you have a firearm to surrender. Do not remove the firearm.

If you have a long gun or rifle, call a non-emergency number and ask that officers be dispatched to your location to pick up your weapon.
