NewsChannel5 teams up with Cleveland Police for handgun buyback program

CLEVELAND - NewsChannel5 is On Your Side and teaming up with the Cleveland Police Foundation to help make Cleveland's streets safer.

Between noon and 8 p.m. today, we are holding a phone bank to help the Cleveland Police Foundation raise money for the Foundation's handgun buyback event set for Saturday, September 6. The phone bank phone number is 800-658-5370.

At the handgun buyback event, people can exchange guns for gift cards, no questions asked. The guns are tagged and checked and eventually melted down.
