The Glassboro Police Department will provide 400 free firearm safety kits for free to local residents through a partnership with Project ChildSafe, the nationwide firearms safety education program.

The safety kits, which include a gunlock, will be distributed on Thursday, April 22, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Glassboro Borough Hall.

The Glassboro Police Department Firearms Unit will make a presentation about firearm safety to the public at 7 p.m.

Project ChildSafe, a program developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, has distributed more than 35 million firearm safety kits throughout the country since 2003.

“We encourage residents to pick up a Project ChildSafe safety kit so that they can securely store their firearm,” said Glassboro Chief of Police Alex Fanfarillo. “Each kit contains a safety curriculum and a cable-style gun lock. The locks fit on most types of handguns, rifles and shotguns. The goal is to prevent a child or any other unauthorized person from accessing a firearm in your home.”

Any resident of Gloucester, Camden or Burlington County is invited to attend. Glassboro’s Borough Hall is at 1 S. Main St. Additional information, is available by contacting Lt. Edwin F. Alicea, (856) 881-1501, ext. 88112.
