The Santa Cruz Police Department is giving away FREE gun locks to members of the community in an effort to increase safety. For those that choose to own a firearm, proper storage and safety of that weapon is of paramount importance! FREE child safety gun locks and gun safety brochure.
You can pick up a FREE gun lock and gun safety brochure at our lobby Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We will give you as many as you need.
Gun locks can save lives. It is possible that tragedies could be avoided and accidents might not happen if a gun has a lock on it. If you own a firearm, respect it and secure it when it's not in use.
In choosing to keep a firearm in your home, you are legally responsible for ensuring that the weapon is stored in a safe manner, and not easily accessible to children or other unauthorized individuals.
The Santa Cruz Police Department supports the efforts of Project ChildSafe and firearm safety education.
