The Redlands Police Department is seeking business and community partners to participate in a program designed to get guns off the streets.
The Gifts for Guns program is based on a successful gun collection program conducted by law enforcement agencies throughout the State of California that has taken thousands of guns off the streets since its inception.
The Gifts for Guns program partners law enforcement with local businesses to offer $50 gift cards to anyone who turns over a functioning firearm to police. The program provides anonymity to those who turn in guns. Based on the experiences of other agencies, Redlands Police estimate they could collect between 50 and 100 guns. After the guns are collected they are destroyed.
