Application des Lois et Criminalisation

Parallèlement, plusieurs entités de la Police nationale haïtienne remplissent un rôle déterminant dans le contrôle de la circulation des armes légères en Haïti. Ces entités permettent l'opérationnalisation des procédures relatives à l'obtention des permis de port et de détention d'armes. Il s'agit du:

– Bureau de port d'armes qui s'occupe de l'étude des dossiers soumis relatifs aux permis de port et à la détention d'armes;

– Bureau de renseignement judiciaire qui s'occupe de la collecte et de l'exploitation des informations relatives aux détenteurs d'armes à feu;

– Bureau de la Police technique et scientifique qui a la capacité d'expertiser une arme.

Ainsi, 20,379 armes à feu de petit calibre ont été régulièrement enregistrées à la section des permis de port d'armes de la PNH et sont réparties comme suit:

– 8,298 pistolets
– 6,353 revolvers
- 5,728 fusils de calibre 12

Law Enforcement and Criminalization

In parallel, several entities of the National Haitian Police have a decisive role in controlling the circulation of small arms in Haiti. These entities allow the implementation of procedures concerning the acquisition of a permit to carry or possess a firearm. Those are:

- The Office for Legal Records, which deals with the collection and exploitation of information relating to firearm owners.

- The Office of Scientific and Technical Police, which can evaluate a firearm.

20,379 small calibre firearms have thus regularly been registered at the department for permits to carry weapons of the NHP.

– 8,298 pistols
– 6,353 revolvers
- 5,728 12 mm calibre rifles
