In 2016 Commissioner Carter gave our department a mission. The mission was and is to take as many illegal guns off the streets. Over the course of three years the department has taken 646 firearms off the streets of Harrisburg. Most of these weapons were possessed by individuals who were not allowed by law to have a firearm. By taking these firearms off the street we stopped at least 646 opportunities to commit violence to the citizens of our City.
We are grateful for the hard work done by our officers each and every day to keep everyone safe.
