Firearm Safety

By partnering with our community, it will be safer!

Firearms are involved in 1.4 percent of unintentional fatalities among children in the United States. The Colony Police Department in association with Project Child Safe wants to make 2021 a safer one for our children and our families with our gun safe program. The Colony residents can pick up a free gun safety lock from The Colony Police Department between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. 

The TCPD urges families to help protect their loved ones and preventing unauthorized people from accessing a firearm kept at home. Along with firearm safety courses, the best prevention is using a gun safety lock. “Our community can help us protect their families in one easy step”, said Officer DeLaCruz “These gun safety locks are free and are proven to help prevent tragedies.”
