White Plains Commissioner of Public Safety David Chong (above) said that you can turn in a gun to the White Plains  Department of Public Safety, but you will not be paid for it. Under the following conditions:

The Commissioner told WPCNR how a citizen wishing to turn in a gun to the police can do that:

“As for a gun, we will always accept a unwanted gun.
Unfortunately we cannot pay for it.  The gun will be checked to see if it was involved in any crimes, there is no amnesty for illegally possessed firearms.
 
 If the firearm is legally possessed or found, or belonged to a family member who cannot safeguard it or is deceased, and is turned in, we will not pursue any charges.
 
We encourage people to turn in unwanted firearms.  We will actually come to your residence and remove the unwanted firearm for anyone.”
For information on how to do this, call the White Plains Police, 914-422-6111
