Police encourage firearm owners in the wider Paeroa area to attend a prohibited firearms amnesty and buy-back collection event on Wednesday, 21 August. The event will be held at Centennial Park, Towers Street, Paeroa, from 10am – 3pm.
Now’s the time to get to an event in a town near you to hand in for buy-back or amnesty. If you can’t make the Paeroa event, there will also be a collection event this weekend for firearm owners in Te Kuiti. An event will be held at the Waitete Rugby Club, Waitete Road, Te Kuiti on Sunday 25 August, 10am – 3pm.
Police want to thank the firearm’s community for their positive response to the collection events so far, and look forward to welcoming you tomorrow and during the weekend.
