SANTA CRUZ POLICE OFFER FREE GUN LOCKS

Santa Cruz police are offering free gun locks to residents who want to keep their firearms safe. A gun lock consists of a cord through the chamber of the weapon and attach it to a padlock, ensuring that the gun can’t be loaded or fired without the key.

The free locks and gun-safety information from Project Childsafe are available 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Monday through Thursday at the Santa Cruz police station, 155 Center St.

“Gun locks can save lives,” said Santa Cruz police spokeswoman Joyce Blaschke.
