National Firearms and Knife Surrender

Alert message sent 23/02/2021 10:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police

Two weeks left to claim your compensation.

Time is running out to hand in any prohibited weapons as the national firearms and knife surrender compensation scheme draws to an end on 9th March. 45 items are now prohibited and need to be surrendered. It is important that these dangerous weapons are handed in so leaving your home to do so is allowed.

Certain prohibited items handed in with the relevant paperwork during the surrender period will receive at least £30 compensation. The item will be sent to the Home Office for valuation and organisation of payment direct to you. The compensation will not be provided by Staffordshire Police.

Have a weapon to surrender? Leek Police Station will be open between 9am and 1pm on the following dates for the purpose of this surrender only:
  • Saturday 27th February
  • Saturday 6th March
You will need:
  • Your weapon – wrapped up accordingly
  • Relevant forms
  • Proof of ownership
Weapons must be transported to the police station in a safe way that does not cause alarm to others. And you must adhere to relevant Covid guidelines and obey the instructions on the signage.

If you are an owner of a prohibited firearm we will contact you to arrange an appointment for collection.
