The Nassau County Police Department plans a three-hour gun buyback program, to take place at a Hempstead Village church on Saturday, offering $200 for each operable handgun.

Only unlicensed handguns will be accepted, the police said.

The gun-for-cash transactions, which will be anonymous, are funded with forfeiture accounts from the Nassau district attorney's office and the police.

Licensed guns, BB guns, air pistols, long guns or replicas will not be accepted at the buyback, to be held from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday at the Union Baptist Church, at 24 Clinton C. Boone Place, Hempstead Village.
