According to the Orlando Police Department, local officers continue to work to reduce violent crime in the City Beautiful in many ways, including removing more guns from the streets.
While on the beat, OPD reported that these guns were taken from individuals who were arrested in the Central Patrol Division for possessing firearms illegal:
These are just the latest illegal guns seized around Orlando, as the SWAT Team previously helped OPD seize more guns, drugs and cash and OPD has conducted numerous operations to continue taking guns off local streets.
