It is one of the primary goals of MPD to safely remove illegal firearms from the streets of DC to reduce crime and crime fear in the community. The responsibility for the recovery of firearms rests on the shoulders of all MPD officers. We also thank the members of the community for their help in creating safe neighborhoods.

The Metropolitan Police Department also finds firearms using anonymous tip-offs made through the MPD’s anonymous tip line. Anyone with information about gun recovery should call the police at 202-727-9099. In addition, information can be sent to the TEXT TIP LINE via SMS 50411. To incentivize members of the community to assist law enforcement, all notice information, including anonymous notice, is rewarded with up to $ 2,500 for information leading to the arrest of a person and the confiscation of an illegal weapon. In addition, the ATF is offering an additional reward of up to $ 5,000 through the end of the year for salvaging a “ghost pistol” and / or a retrofit handgun. While previously only information that led to a conviction was rewarded, information that led to the arrest and recovery of a firearm is now rewarded with bonus payments.
