*UPDATE* MPD Recovers Numerous Firearms Over the Weekend
(December 9th to December 12th)
(Washington, DC) – Every day the Metropolitan Police Department works to recover and investigate illegal firearms in Washington D.C. In addition to our patrol officers, the Department has specialized units-such as the Gun Recovery Unit (GRU), Criminal Interdiction Unit (CIU), and Crime Suppression Teams-who work tirelessly to safely and respectfully secure illegal firearms and get them off of our streets. From Friday, December 9, 2016, through the morning of Monday, December 12, 2016, MPD detectives and officers recovered 18 illegal firearms in the District of Columbia.
Among the firearms recovered this weekend were:

* On Friday, December 9, 2016, a black 9mm semi-automatic handgun and a 22LR handgun were recovered from the Unit Block of New York Avenue, Northeast. CCN: 16-208-202

It is one of MPD’s main goals to safely remove illegal firearms from DC streets to reduce crime and the fear of crime in the community. The responsibility to recover firearms falls on the shoulders of all MPD officers. We also thank members of the community for their help in creating safe neighborhoods.
The Metropolitan Police Department also recovers firearms with the assistance of anonymous tips made through MPD’s anonymous tip line. Anyone who has information regarding gun recoveries should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411. The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $2,500 to anyone who provides information that leads to the recovery of an illegal firearm hidden in the District of Columbia.
