BROWARD CRIME STOPPERS SUPPORTS GUN BUYBACK
Awards $15,000 Toward the Program
Broward Crime Stoppers presented $10,000 to the Broward Sheriff's Office and $5,000 to the Miramar Police Department on March 21 in support of the upcoming gun buyback events.
The BSO's first gun buyback will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, April 6, at the E. Pat Larkins Center, 520 Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard in Pompano Beach. A range master will be on hand to evaluate the firearms turned in, awarding up to $100 in gift cards for each.
"In BSO jurisdictions, since the beginning of this year, we've had around 30 firearms stolen in residential burglaries," Sheriff Scott Israel said. "Instead of having guns laying around the house where anyone can get to them, we want gun owners to make safety paramount. If they just don't want them anymore, they can turn them in at our gun buyback. No questions asked."
