• Gun buyback supported by area law enforcement agencies

    On Sat., April 6 area law enforcement agencies will hold an “anonymous” gun buyback. They are offering $100 cash for each gun turned in.
    “Removing guns, and the accessibility of available guns that could be used in the commission of a crime, is important or everyone’s safety,” said a spokesperson.
    Community leaders are being asked to make donations to the program, which would greatly increase the number of firearms the effort is expected to purchase. Organizers are reserving the right to limit the cash payment to anyone individual regardless of the number of firearms turned in.
    The gun buyback will be held in Seaside, at Roberts Lake, corner of Roberts Avenue and Canyon Del Rey, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
    Signators to the program include: William Perlstein, Captain, California Highway Patrol; Earl Lawson, Chief, CSUMB Police Dept.; Michael Calhou, Chief, Carmel Police Dept.; Ron Langford, Chief, Del Rey Oaks Police Dept.; Edmundo Rodriqguez, Chief, Marina Police Dept.; Scott Miller, Sheriff, Monterey County; Phil Penko, Chief, Monterey Police Dept.; Michael Klein, Chief, Sand City Police Dept.; and Vicki Myers, Chief, Pacific Grove and Seaside Police Departments.
    Anyone wishing to donate, or having questions about the program, may contact Kathryn with the Seaside Police Department at 831-899-6753.
