The Michigan City Police Department, along with Chief Mark Swistek, in conjunction with the Violent Crime Reduction Initiative, would like to announce the 2019 “Silence the Violence Gun Drive!” The police department will be hosting the event this Friday March 1st and Saturday March 2nd from 9:00am to 1:00pm. They are asking all citizens to turn in any handguns in which they will give you, in return, a $100.00 VISA Gift Card Compliments, of Horizon Bank.
They will additionally give $50.00 for every shotgun and rifle turned in during this event.
Just bring your unloaded gun to the lobby of the Michigan City Police Department where you will receive your gift card. Do not worry if these dates do not work as they will continue the drive through Saturday until all donated funds are used.
BB Guns, Pellet guns, starter pistols and varied gun pieces may be brought in where they will be properly destroyed. They will also gladly accept unwanted ammunition in which will be disposed of at no charge. As a measure for safer and secure storage they are offering “free gun locks” to all residents. If you have any questions, please contact Sgt. Chris Yagelski 873-1461 ext. #1020 or email ASKACOP@Emichigancity.com
