The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) has announced the initiation of a National Firearms (Gun) Amnesty starting Friday, 1st March 2024, lasting for ninety-one (91) days until Friday, 31st May 2024. This initiative aims to bolster community safety and security by mitigating the threat posed by illegally held firearms and ammunition throughout the state.

The amnesty program seeks to encourage individuals to voluntarily surrender unlicensed firearms, ammunition, replica or imitation firearms, and firearm parts to the RSVGPF without the fear of prosecution for contravention of the Firearms Act. This effort is geared towards reducing the potential of these weapons falling into criminal hands due to theft, loss, or break-ins.

In an effort to raise awareness about the amnesty and to address related concerns, the RSVGPF, alongside its partners, will conduct Town Hall Meetings and Walkabouts in various communities. These engagements are designed to sensitize residents to the amnesty and foster a collaborative effort to remove illegal firearms from the streets.

The RSVGPF urges the public’s cooperation in this crucial initiative to “KEEP THE COUNTRY SAFE FROM ILLEGALLY HELD FIREARMS.” This collective effort represents a significant step towards enhancing the safety and security of communities throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
