SLCPD hands out free gun locks, reminds community of firearm safety

 

 

SALT LAKE CITY — During hunting season, SLCPD likes to remind everyone about firearm safety. The Department has hundreds of cable locks to hand out for free, through October, to anyone who would like one. These locks can be picked up at either the Public Safety Building at 475 S. 300 E., or the Pioneer Precinct at 1040 W. 700 S. during normal business hours.

Securing your firearms should be a priority, even if you don’t have children at home. Securing your firearm decreases the chances of theft due to firearms being a favorite target of thieves. Safely storing a firearm and using a firearm safety device can also eliminate or minimize the risk of unintentional death, injury, or damage caused by improper handling of firearms.

HOW TO SAFELY STORE YOUR FIREARM:

·         Storage methods include keyed locks, combination locks, lock boxes and firearm safes.

·         Keep the keys out of reach of children and where others cannot find them.

·         Store ammunition in a separate, securely locked container.

·         Use a firearm safety device such as a trigger lock or a cable lock.
