Walsh says it’s just one piece of an overall plan to make the city safer.

“We’re going to be launching the sites where the drop-offs will be, we’re working on the program and how we’re going to be able to do the buy back itself,” Walsh said. “We’re starting with $100,000 in the bank.”

The program is funded from private donations.
