THERE are just a few days left to surrender weapons to Victoria Police under its month-long arms amnesty.
More than 10 items have so far been handed in to Wodonga officers during the statewide weapons and firearms amnesty, including five guns and five knives or swords.
Benalla police also received five firearms as well as ammunition.
The scheme, which runs all October, allows people the chance to surrender any unwanted or illegal item without penalty.
Insp Gavan Dorian, of Victoria Police’s licensing services division, welcomed the results so far.
“By coming forward, it shows people are not only thinking about their safety but also the safety of the broader community,” he said.
Ballarat had 33 guns and 36 sets of ammunition surrendered and Bendigo police received three swords and 14 firearms so far.
