During the current firearms amnesty, the Bowen Island RCMP would like to remind people NOT to turn in firearms at the detachment. If you have a firearm to relinquish, please call the non-emergency line, 604-947-0516 and you will be given instructions on how to safely surrender your firearm. We will greet you in a very different manner if you arrive at the detachment holding a firearm than if you call ahead and arrange to have it picked up.
