Daytona Beach - City Highlights

[ARCHIVED] Gun Buyback Event Oct. 24

The Daytona Beach Police Department is participating in Real Radio’s 104.1’s annual “Kicks for Guns” event on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Midtown Substation, located at 995 Orange Ave. The initiative encourages residents to safely dispose of unwanted firearms anonymously in exchange for a gift card valued up to $50.

All firearms should be unloaded and safely secured. As a safety precaution, trained officers will retrieve guns from vehicles for gun owners who don't know if their guns are loaded or are uncomfortable unloading their own weapons. Following the event, all surrendered guns will be destroyed.

Started more than 20 years ago, the Kicks for Guns initiative addresses the issue of guns ending up on streets and being used to commit a crime. Originally, sneakers were given in exchange for guns.

The Daytona Beach Police Department has participated in Kicks for Guns since 2010 and collected 42 guns at last year’s event.

For more information, please call (386) 671-5425.
