In 2013-14, ACT Policing in partnership with the ACT Government and Crime Stoppers launched the ACT Illicit Firearms Rewards campaign as a method to target serious and organised crime.
The focus of this initiative was to offer public reward payments of up to $5000 for information leading to the seizure of illicit firearms or a successful prosecution for firearm-related crime.
As a result of the six-month campaign, ACT Policing executed 25 search warrants, resulting in the seizure of 25 operational firearms, 11 replica firearms and about 3,500 rounds of assorted ammunition.
