The force launched the first firearms amnesty in a decade on Monday 3rd March.

It aimed to remove illegal weapons off the streets as well as weapons being held in ignorance that could potentially be used for criminal activity.

It was also an opportunity for those with legal weapons to dispose of them safely if they no longer wanted them.
