Project ChildSafe is one of the gun lock program's supporters.

The Middleton Police Department has offered free gun locks to citizens for the past several years and still has gun locks available for free, thanks to funding made available by the Charles E. Kubly Foundation as well as continued support from Safe Communities of Madison-Dane CountyProject ChildSafe® and H.O.P.E.S. (Helping Others Prevent and Educate About Suicide). 

The free gun locks can be obtained, while supplies last, by stopping by the Middleton Police Department lobby 24-hours a day, seven-days a week.

 According to a statement issued by the Middleton Police Department, the Charles E. Kubly Foundation seeks to “better the lives of those affected by depression by increasing public awareness of the disease and its devastating effects, eliminating the stigma associated with it, supporting suicide prevention programs and promoting improved access to quality mental health resources within communities.”

Safe Communities is a Dane County-based coalition of nearly 300 organizations working to save lives, prevent injury and make our communities safer. Project ChildSafe® is a nationwide program whose purpose is to promote safe firearms handling and storage practices among all firearms owners through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm safety kits. H.O.P.E.S (Helping Others Prevent and Educate About Suicide) is a statewide suicide prevention advocacy organization.
