Stockpile Management and Security - State-Owned Firearm Records

All small arms and light weapons stockpiled by the police are registered by serial number. One distinguishes between weapons personally assigned to an official and those in the holding of the authority.

There are small numbers of weapons for replacement contained in the stockpiles. The disposal of small arms and light weapons as well as their single main elements depend on permission of the Ministry of the Interior. The destruction needs to be supervised by a commission.
