As part of his One Safe Houston initiative, Mayor Sylvester Turner, Harris County Precinct One Commissioner Rodney Ellis and the Houston Police Department will host Saturday the 4th gun buyback, aimed at reducing the number of guns on our streets.  

Gift cards valued at $50, $100, $150 or $200 will be distributed to each person who turns in a gun. Amount varies depending on type of firearm.

One Safe Houston is a $53 million investment aimed at crime reduction. The comprehensive violence reduction initiative links research-based strategies to improve public safety and reduce the harms caused by violent crime.

The initiative focuses on four (4) key areas:

  • Violence Reduction and Crime Prevention
  • Crisis Intervention, Response and Recovery
  • Youth Outreach Opportunities
  • Key Community Partnerships

The Gun Buyback program is open to all members of the public.

WHEN: Saturday, June 10, 2023
8 a.m. – Noon
Yellow Lot

People should unload the firearm before arriving at the collection site and place it in the trunk or the rear of their vehicle.

HPD personnel will remove the gun from the vehicle and ensure the firearm is unloaded and rendered safe. Once the weapon is collected, the person donating will receive a receipt to exchange for a gift card.

Ghost guns will not be accepted!!!
