"The amnesty lasts until June 30th and we encourage the public to make full use of this." advises Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. "It only serves to make our community a safer place".

A reminder to the public that if they wish to turn in any weapons or firearms, they should phone the Detachment first at 604-792-4611 and an officer will attend your residence. Please do not bring fire arms or weapons to the RCMP office.
