In response to a middle school student’s tragic loss of life in Albuquerque on Friday, Aug. 13, 2021, the Los Alamos Police Department, in partnership with Project Childsafe, would like to offer free gun locks to the community.
This tragedy might have been avoided if the firearm was properly locked and secured.
Utilizing gun locks is one way to reduce the chances of a gun being misused.
Following best practice firearm safety rules, LAPD recommends that all firearms be secured in a locked firearm safe, and ammunition should be stored in a separate locked container.
Anyone who would like a free gun lock is asked to stop by the police station at 2500 Trinity Dr. and a gun lock will be provided at no charge.
