The San Jose Police Department has entered into a partnership and developed a Gun Buy Back program. The San Jose Police Department's Gun Buy Back is designed to reduce the number of unwanted firearms and reduce gun violence within the City of San Jose.

The Gun Buy Back Program provides local residents an opportunity to voluntarily turn in firearms in exchange for gift cards. The SJPD Gun Buy Back Program will be held on Saturday, December 3, at San Jose Police Department Training Substation, 6087 Great Oaks Parkway, San Jose, Ca.

This program is a partnership among San Jose City Council Office District 2, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, San Jose Police Department, Office of Santa Clara County District 1, Office of California State Assembly District 29, First 5 of Santa Clara County, HEALTHTrust and Community Sponsors: Councilmembers Manh Nguyen and Don Rocha.

Guns collected will be checked for lost or stolen status, and if applicable, will be returned to their legal owners. All other firearms will be prepared for destruction.

Funding for this important event is raised from public and private donors and tax-deductible donated funds are held by San Jose Police Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) account. For those community members who would like to donate to this event, please visit www.sanjosepolicefoundation.org.  

Those who turn in a gun will receive a gift card. $100 will be given for handguns, rifles and shotguns and $200 for Assault Weapons.

Transport UNLOADED weapons in the trunk of your car. No walk -ups. No ammunition. Funds are limited. We reserve the right to limit funds to an individual, regardless of the number of weapons surrendered. Weapons must be functional.
