Gun Buy Back

Our first tri-city Gun Buy Back event was a resounding success!  Held on February 23, 2013 at the East Palo Alto City Hall, the community turned in well over 300 firearms in less than three hours.

The tri-city Gun Buy Back event was a unique collaboration between public and private partners.  Three police departments (Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and East Palo Alto) teamed up with a local non-profit organization (Protect Our Children, Inc.) to coordinate the event.  Over $50,000 in privately-raised funds from members of our community paid for the firearms. It is likely that another tri-city Gun Buy Back event will be held in the future.  Please check back to this page for future information.
