The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office in cooperation with local police departments, the Monmouth County Sheriff's Department, Monmouth County Chiefs of Police Association and Board of Chosen Freeholders periodically conducts Voluntary Weapons Surrender Programs, commonly known as "Guns for Cash," at area police departments and the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.
This program allows citizens to turn in unwanted weapons for cash payments of $100 for assault weapons, $50 for handguns and $25 for rifles or shotguns. The program is anonymous and voluntary. Individuals transporting weapons are allowed to transport without a permit to the surrender location only. No other exemptions exist. Weapons should be unloaded and transported in a gun case or other sealed container. Weapons should not be transported while concealed on an individual's person. Licensed firearms dealers are not eligible for this program. A uniformed officer will be stationed outside the building to provide additional information and directions.
For further information contact Lieutenant Wesley Mayo, Jr. of the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office at (732) 431-7160, ext. 5859.
