Gun buyback

For the first time in nearly a decade, the Oakland Police Department (OPD) will hold a gun buyback.   Tomorrow, OPD is teaming up with several community partners to host a unique and innovative gun buyback titled: Guns to Gardens. The surrendered firearms will become repurposed garden tools to help beautify the city of Oakland.

The event will take place at At Thy Word Ministries, 8915 International Blvd, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. 

The first 50 people to turn in their firearms will receive a forged garden tool. Additionally, those turning in their firearm will receive a gift card in the amount of $100-$300, depending on the type of gun surrendered. 

All the firearms collected at the event will ultimately be forged into garden tools.
