I have a firearm or firearms, can I turn them into the Police Department?
If you are a resident of the City of Lake Forest Park, you can turn in your firearm(s) to the Police Department. However, many citizens do not realize that their firearms may be collectible and thus valuable, or are just worth money on their own if they were sold or consigned to be sold through a reputable firearms dealer. There are many dealers that can facilitate the buying outright or consigning your firearm(s). Cabela’s Gun Library - Marysville, DJ’s Loan & Sport – Bothell, and AMS Guns – Woodinville are local examples. If the decision is to turn in a firearm to the Police Department, it is strongly recommended to call the PD first (206) 364-8216 and make an appointment with the Support Officer. Any firearm brought to the PD must be unloaded, and if a semi-automatic, the slide should be locked back in the open position with no magazine inserted in the magazine well. Additionally, any magazines should not have ammunition inserted in them as well.
