BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- After successfully taking in more than 1,200 guns in the last few years, the Bridgeport Police Department is having another gun buyback program from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

“Guns that are purchased as part of this program can never be used to hurt or kill ever again. I strongly believe that this effort has saved lives and has made Bridgeport a safer place for kids and families. Even if this program saves one life, it is money well spent.” said Mayor Bill Finch.

The gun buyback program is part of a comprehensive strategy in Bridgeport to reduce violence and crack down on illegal gun use and illegal gun trafficking in the city.

The event will be at the Bridgeport Police Department, Community Services Division, 1395 Sylvan Ave.
