Friday, May 11, 2018 - Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in collaboration with Woodstock Police Service and other Municipal Police Services held a Gun Amnesty during the month of April 2018.

The guns that were turned into the Woodstock Police will be destroyed. The OPP have a number of guns that will be retained for historical, educational and training purposes.
