SDPD provide free gun locks for SD residents through Project Childsafe

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – In an increased effort to protect lives and keep unsecured firearms out of the wrong hands, the San Diego Police Department announced the latest initiative they are supporting, Project Childsafe. 

Local gun owners can acquire free trigger locks and firearm-safety literature at any SDPD division station, with the exception of the main downtown headquarters. 

As part of a nationwide program, 900 of the kits will be provided at no charge to the city of San Diego.

SDPD Chief Shelley Zimmerman stated that the firearm-safety kits, “can help provide responsible gun owners with the tools and education they need to safely store their guns away from children, at-risk individuals and criminals.”

More than 37 million gun owners have gotten the safety materials since 1998, and firearm owners with children are also urged to watch an educational video, which can be found on
