Project ChildSafe

Picture of Project ChildSafe vanProject ChildSafe is a nationwide firearm safety education program that teaches firearm owners how to properly store and safely handle their weapons. Accidental firearm-related injuries and deaths in the home, particularly those that involve children and teenagers, can be reduced when firearm owners fully understand their responsibilities. To educate gun owners, Project ChildSafe distributes firearm safety kits containing a gunlock and safety information. The project also helps local law enforcement agencies schedule firearm safety events in their communities.

Project ChildSafe is a component of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a comprehensive, strategic approach to reducing gun crime nationwide. PSN addresses gun violence through prevention, enforcement, and prosecution. Project ChildSafe is part of PSN?s prevention efforts.
