Hartford Mayor Applauds Success of Gun Buyback Program

(December 4, 2011) Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra announced Sunday the success of the collaborative gun buyback event, which netted approximately 120 firearms – nearly 30 percent more than the previous year. The program, a collaborative effort that included the Hartford Police Department, area hospitals and community agencies, is in its third year.

“At a young age I lost my father and two best friends to gun violence, so I am personally aware of how violent crime significantly impacts families and communities,” said Mayor Segarra. “More weapons were recovered this year than in years past, proof positive that our residents are committed to making our neighborhoods safer and stronger.”

This Year’s Program, “Gifts for Guns – Getting Them Off the Streets,” was held Saturday, December 3, 2011 at Community Renewal Team, 555 Windsor Street. The guns obtained Saturday exceed the number of weapons secured in the two previous years of the program, 89 in 2010 and 78 in 2009. In addition to CRT and HPD, the program was implemented in collaboration with Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Hartford Hospital, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, the City of Hartford, the Connecticut Emergency Nurses Association (CTETNA), and the Hartford State’s Attorney’s Office.

“The Hartford Police Department is grateful to our law enforcement and community partners in this effort,” said Chief Daryl K. Roberts. “The result of the gun buyback program is another step toward ensuring public safety and quality of life in our City.”

The program seeks to raise awareness about responsible and safe gun ownership. Residents who turned in guns received gift cards as compensation for the weapons.
