Free Gun Locks Available at SCPD

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!
The Santa Cruz Police Department is giving away
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.
The gun locks and brochures are provided in collaboration with Project Childsafe. For more information on the safe handling and storage of firearms, visit their Website at:

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.
