The Amador County Sheriff's Office, in cooperation with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), is making free gun locks and educational materials available to residents of Amador County through Project ChildSafe.
Project ChildSafe is a nationwide program whose purpose is to promote safe firearms handling and storage practices among all firearms owners through the distribution of key safety education messages and free gun locking devices (safety kits).
Since 2003, Project ChildSafe has distributed more than 35 million safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five U.S. territories and continues to help its law enforcement partners promote firearms safety by providing educational materials and support services.
Project ChildSafe, a component of the Bush administration's "Project Safe Neighborhoods" gun violence prevention initiative, is supported by the firearms industry, U.S. Dept. of Justice (DOJ) grants, and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), administrators of the program.
To get a Project ChildSafe safety kit, please contact the Amador County Sheriff's Office at (209) 223-6500 or come by during normal business hours.
