Help Keep Firearms Safe From Children!
The Highland Village Police Department participates in a nationwide grant from the U.S. Department of Justice called “Project Childsafe.” Project Childsafe provides our police department with FREE gunlocks to distribute in our community. The purpose is to secure any firearms kept in the home and to keep them safe from children.
An unsecured firearm handled by an unsupervised and curious child can
result in deadly consequences. Under certain circumstances, the parent
of a child who gains unlawful access to an unsecured firearm may be
charged with the crime of Making a Firearm Accessible to a Child, Texas
Gunlocks are available at the Police Department
for anyone who is interested. You may also stop any police officer and
they will provide you with one. Help us protect kids from accidental
firearms injuries and deaths. Keep your guns and ammunition locked and
away from children.
