Firearm Amnesty Program

In an effort to improve public safety, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors (in cooperation with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and Rancho Cordova Police Department) will be holding a firearm amnesty event on April 6th and 7th, 2018 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day.  This will give anyone the opportunity to voluntarily surrender any unwanted firearms in a safe and anonymous environment.

Anyone wishing to participate can come to one of the Sheriff’s Department facilities listed below and turn in any firearm with no questions asked.  All surrendered firearms will be destroyed and disposed of.

In order to make this a safe event for all involved, we ask that you check in with the on-duty Deputy Sheriff or Security Officer at the facility prior to removing any weapon from your vehicle.  After participants advise Sheriff’s Department staff of their desire to turn in a weapon, a Sheriff’s Department employee will walk out to their vehicle and assist them in retrieving the firearm, rendering it safe and then bringing it into our facility.

The following are the locations of Sheriff’s Department and Rancho Cordova Police Department facilities where firearms can be surrendered anonymously:
