Berkeley Offers Free Firearm Safety Kits

BERKELEY – The township will be participating in “Project Child Safe,” which provides free gun locks and literature on how to handle firearms safely, officials said.

“The Police Chief and I are committed to firearm safety in our community. We are pleased to offer free firearm safety kits to the residents of Berkeley Township,” Mayor Carmen Amato said.

The program, Project Child Safe, is run by the National Shooting Sports Foundation with the purpose of promoting safety and education in using firearms.

“If you own a firearm, please practice responsible gun ownership by using a gun lock and storing your firearms away from children,” Chief Karin DiMichele said.

The free kits are available for Berkeley residents. They can be picked up at the Berkeley Township Police Department located at Pinewald-Keswick Road, Bayville, New Jersey 08721 at the Records window between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. For more information, visit
