Weapons for mass destruction

Pepper and CS sprays are illegal in the UK and can be handed in during March's weapons amnesty in BFGA month-long weapons amnesty will take effect across BFG starting on March 1.

The Royal Military Police have announced a BFG-wide reprieve from prosecution
for the surrender of illegal weapons during the amnesty period, which runs from March 1 to 31.

The crime prevention (CP) initiative is being led by 110 Provost Company, with drop-off points at local police stations in Sennelager, Hohne, Gütersloh and Herford for all theatre-based personnel who are subject to the Service Discipline Acts.
