Industrial shredder to save police time

A new industrial shredder has been unveiled at the ACT Policing Exhibit Management Centre in Mitchell.

It was funded by the ACT Government as part of the 2015/16 budget and will streamline the process of destroying firearms, drug grow house equipment, exhibits no longer required for court and other items.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Mick Gentleman, says prior to the industrial shredder, police could destroy 50 fire arms a day, but this could do that in about 10 minutes.

He says it will also free up hours of police time that was previously used to destroy the items.
