Romeoville Police Gun Buy-Back

The Romeoville Police Department will be conducting a “Gun Buy-Back” Program where persons can turn in their weapons; No Questions Asked and without penalty, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at the Romeoville Police Department, West Entrance, 1050 W. Romeo Road, Romeoville.

Residents who know of unwanted weapons in their home are encouraged to turn them in. This also includes weapons that were previously owned by someone who is now deceased or has left the home.

$60 cash will be paid on the spot for each weapon turned in, maximum of three. Ammunition may be turned in as well; however, there will be no payment to individuals turning in ammunition only.

Citizens can remain anonymous and will not face any penalties for unlawful firearms. Weapons should be unloaded and placed in a bag or other container and transported in the trunk or rear area of your vehicle. If you are unfamiliar with weapons, do not try to unload it or tamper with it in any way.

Persons wishing to participate in the program, but do not have a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (F.O.I.D.) will be given amnesty during transport provided they travel in a direct route from their home to the drop-off point.

Once you arrive at the site, an officer will take possession of your weapon, and no questions will be asked of the person turning in the weapon(s).

If you want to turn in a weapon but have no transportation or you prefer a police officer transport your weapon(s), contact the Police Department, and assistance will be provided on a case-by-case basis.

If you have any further questions about the program, please contact Sgt. Matthew Nelson at 815-886-7215.
