Project ChildSafe, a national program designed to provide cable-type gun locks to gun-owning parents ” and thereby offer a small but not completely foolproof measure of security to kids in the home ” has provided gun safety kits to police departments in our area. Six hundred free safety kits are now available from the Glenwood Springs Police Department and can be picked up from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“We encourage residents to pick up a Project ChildSafe safety kit so that they can securely store their firearm,” says Sgt. Levy Burris of the GSPD. “Each kit contains a safety curriculum and a cable-type gun lock. The locks fit on most types of handguns, rifles and shotguns. The goal is to prevent a child or any other unauthorized person from accessing a firearm in your home.”

The Basalt Police Department also received a whopping order of 1,300 gun locks; contact Sgt. Mark Langford or Sgt. Jose Cavira at 927-4316 for more information.

More than 360,000 gun locks are being provided throughout Colorado as part of the program.
