The Cleveland Police Department will hold their annual gun buyback program this month.

The buyback will take place on Oct. 20, starting at 9 a.m. at Cleveland's Third District police station, 4501 Chester Ave.

Anyone bringing in a firearm is eligible for a gift card valued at $100 for handguns and $200 for semi-automatic rifles.

Anyone wanting to participate should adhere to the following guidelines:

Weapons should be in working order.

They must be unloaded, placed inside a clear plastic bag and then placed in another bag such as a backpack.

Pack ammunition separately.  Transport unloaded and properly bagged weapons inside the trunk of your car.

Officers will check to make sure the weapons are in working order. Non-semi-automatic rifles and shotguns can be turned in but they will not be eligible for a gift card.
