Bloomington Police Department partners with Project ChildSafe. This partnership helps make the community safer with free gun locks and education materials to help prevent firearm accidents, theft and misuse, including suicide. 
Project ChildSafe Lock

FREE gun locks are available in the police department during open lobby hours. The cable lock can be used on most firearms, allows for quick acess in an emergency and offers security from theft. The cable runs through the barrel or action of a firearm to prevent it from being accidentally fired, requiring either a key to unlock it.
