Goods for Guns Buyback Program 2017

Saturday, December 16th between 10:00 a.m. & 2:00 p.m. The Charlton Police Department will be participating in the Annual Goods for Guns Buyback Program sponsored by District Attorney Joseph Early & the Injury Prevention Center at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

The program allows citizens to anonymously turn in operable guns and receive local grocery chain gift cards. A $25 gift certificate will be given for each Long gun turned in, A $50 gift certificate given for each Handgun, and a $75 gift certificate given for each Semi-automatic weapon. Non-operational guns, ammunition, and firearm accessories may be turned in; however, no gift cards will be issued for these items. No LTC or FID is required - The District Attorney's Office will grant immunity to those parties dropping off firearms, rifles or shotguns, but ONLY to those who are actively participating in this program. If you have an unwanted firearm, but cannot get to the Police Department next Saturday, you will still be eligible for the gift certificates. Just contact us at 508-248-2250 on the 16th and an Officer will come to your residence and retrieve the guns. Important Notice: All guns brought directly to the police station MUST be unloaded and contained in a case or wrapped in a bag. Free gun locks will also be available to those who need them.
