Local Wisconsin police are teaming with Project ChildSafe to distribute free gun safety kits.

Police in La Crosse, Wisconsin are collaborating with Project ChildSafe — a nationwide non-profit organization which promotes the safe handling of firearms — to distribute free gun safety kits to the public.

According to News8000.com, the partnership comes as a result of the local police department receiving a grant from the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The kits include a cable-style gun lock and a safety brochure with more information about how to safely and properly store a gun in one’s home.

“We have had a lot people calling, wanting information, wanting you know what kind of locks work, what don’t work, and so we’re lucky to get this grant that we can help people out and give them something free to help make their house, their community a little bit safer,” said La Crosse Police Department Officer Kurt Weaver.

As News8000.com reports, those looking for a Project ChildSafe safety kit can contact the La Crosse Police Department at (608) 789-7240 or stop in at Wiebke Fur and Trading Company on Rose Street in La Crosse.
