For those with firearms in the house, the Santa Cruz Police Department stresses that proper storage and safety is of paramount importance.
Backing up that belief, the department is giving away FREE child-safety gun locks and gun-safety brochures.
Pick up a gun lock and brochure at the station lobby from Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"We will give you as many as you need," says the generous ol' PD!
The gun locks and brochures are provided in collaboration with Project Childsafe.
