ACT Policing’s Exhibit Management Centre in Mitchell, including the ACT Firearms Registry, has temporarily closed to the public.    

Earlier today (Wednesday, 5 June 2024), the water main to the building was damaged which has impacted the water supply to the building.    

Efforts are being made to fix the damaged main as quickly as possible, however no return date has been confirmed. We will provide further information when it is available.    

Property and vehicle collections have been suspended at this time, however the ACT Policing Property Office can still be contacted on (02) 5126 9074.     

People seeking to surrender firearms, or those with inquiries in relation to firearms licence renewals, firearm inspections, or appointments at the firearms registry, should contact the ACT Firearms Registry on (02) 5126 9076 or ACTFirearmsRegistry@afp.gov.au.
