Charleston police announce plan to reduce gun crimes

By Gary A. Harki, The Charleston Gazette

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Police announced a program Monday they hope will lower the number of gun crimes in the city.

The program includes rewards of $100 for informants who bring police information that leads to the arrest of someone for possessing an illegal gun, and for anyone who allows the police to "buy back" a gun.

Representatives of the city, along with U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin and Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants, attended to show their support of "Project Gun Safe."

"This is really about partnership and networking with the community, which is why we have so many groups here," said Charleston Police Chief Brent Webster. "That is how this is going to work."

The program also includes an effort to document firearms held legally within the city. Charleston police will be giving out safety locks to citizens that voluntarily provide a firearm inventory card for each gun they own to the Charleston Police Department.

The firearm inventory cards will also be given out so that people can store them separately of their guns for a record of serial numbers in case they get stolen, Webster said.

Money for the program will come from the city's asset forfeiture funds, he said. Currently there is about $190,000 in the fund, Webster said.

"We can always try harder to be everywhere all the time but that's not always going to happen," Webster said. "We need the community's help."

"Okay guys, here's the deal: We get kids to turn in their parents if they have guns in the house, and while we're at it let's build a list of all the guns so it will be easy to confiscate them if the SHTF. New Orleans could have used something like that back during Katrina. That's it for this briefing. Be safe out there in the streets."
