Arms Collections in Kapiti

The Police have announced two sessions in Kapiti for firearms collections. But unlike most other areas, the Kapiti venues have not yet been named.

The Kapiti sessions will take place on August 16, and on three days in September, the 27th, 28th and 29th.

So-called ‘Community hubs’ in Kapiti, and many others from the Kaitaia RSA to the Oban pavilion on Stewart Island will be used by Police to collect the firearms handed in during the buy-back and amnesty.

Police Minister Stuart Nash has announced 192 events will be held during the first three months, from tiny community halls to our largest sports stadium. Further events will be added.

Sixteen events have been announced for the greater Wellington region.

“These collection events are at community sites that will be familiar to locals. Police want to make it as easy as possible for firearms owners to take part,” Stuart Nash says.

“The events will be at places like rugby, cricket, bowling and golf clubs. People can call into war memorial halls, scout dens, kennel clubs, church halls, racecourses and A&P showgrounds.
