PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT February 22, 2016
Do you own a firearm? If you answered yes, then the next important question is:
Do you have a safety lock to prevent a tragedy from occurring?
If you answered NO, the Flagler Beach Police Department has a firearm Safety Kit with a cable lock (and two (2) keys) that we’ll provide to you free of charge.
The Flagler Beach Police Department has partnered with “Project ChildSafe” in order to issue FREE firearm Safety Kits to our residents. Safety Kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals, particularly children.
“Project ChildSafe” is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit charitable organization committed to promoting firearms safety through the distribution of educational messages and free firearm Safety Kits. “We’re proud to partner with “Project ChildSafe” in order to make our community safer,” stated Police Captain Matt Doughney.
“This free service, thanks to “Project ChildSafe,” affords our Department the opportunity to provide an extremely valuable service that can make a difference in our community,” continued Captain Doughney. “This is another Community Policing initiative that can help make Flagler Beach a safer place to live, work and visit.”
Safety Kits are available at the Flagler Beach Police Department, Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
