MP Police Department sponsors gun buyback day
Residents may drop off guns at the Mt. Olive AOH Church of God, 605 Hamilton Ave., in Menlo Park today (5/1) from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and receive a $50 gift card for each operational firearm. The program is sponsored by the Menlo Park Police Department and the Crime Prevention Narcotics & Drug Education Center. People turning in their guns are advised to place the unloaded firearm in a plastic or paper bag and to store them in the trunk or rear seat of a car when coming to turn them in. If unsure whether or not the gun is loaded, police officers will assist you. For more information contact MPPD Sergeant Ortega at (650) 330-6300.
