Gun Buyback Program Coming in August
NOBLE Partners with Local Law Enforcement
July 08, 2014
The North Florida Chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) is partnering with the following law enforcement agencies to sponsor the City's bi-annual Gun Buyback Program: Florida A & M University Police Department, Florida State University Police Department, Leon County Sheriff Office and Tallahassee Police Department. This proactive campaign is aimed at silencing gun violence in our city and sending a loud message to criminals that we will not allow our streets to be overridden by crime.
Gun violence is a community issue, and we need the community's support. Local businesses, churches, and citizens are asked to donate funds to help off-set the cost of purchasing gift cards for firearms turned in during the event. Donations can be made to the North Florida Chapter of NOBLE by contacting Tonja Bryant-Smith @850-528-7037 or Meschelle Pittman at 850-251-7562.
Gun Buyback Dates/Locations:
August 15, 2014, 6:00pm - 8:30pm @ Thomasville Baptist Church, 3131 Thomasville Road and August 16, 2014, 1:00pm - 3:30pm @ Bethel AME Church, 501 West Orange Avenue.
