RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio — As families prepare to gather for the holidays, the Richmond Heights Police Department is promoting safety. The agency is offering a free tool to prevent gun violence and accidents.
“Unsecured firearms, unfortunately, can result in a tragic outcome,” said RHPD Sargent James McVey.
Members of the public can secure their firearms with free gun locks available at the Richmond Heights Police Department. The initiative is in collaboration with national safety education program Project ChildSafe, which offers a brochure about gun safety and security with each gun lock.
“Gun owners should make sure their guns are in a safe location, especially when they have children or guests or anyone else over at the house. During the holidays, that’s a special consideration,” said Sgt. McVey.
