Will I be notified if the gun is returned?

If you were the person who asked for the extreme risk protection order, you can ask the law enforcement agency holding the gun to notify you before the gun is returned to the respondent. You or the judge can also ask the law enforcement agency to notify any “interested party,” for example, the respondent’s family or someone the respondent lives with.1
