Firearm Safe Storage

This page will be updated as more information becomes available, check back often.

Jeffco Public Schools has partnered with local law enforcement agencies to provide free firearm locks at high schools. Colorado law requires gun owners to store their firearms in locking devices out of the reach of children or anyone not allowed to access them.

How to get a Free Firearm Lock

Jeffco community members are welcome to pick up a free firearm lock at any Jeffco high school.

  1. Visit a Jeffco high school anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday–Friday.
  2. Go to the main entrance and buzz the front office. Let the front office staff know you are there to pick up a free firearm lock.

  3. A member of the campus security team will meet you at the school entrance to give you a free firearm lock.
    • The school staff will note that a lock has been distributed, but will not collect any contact information.

Please note, it is a felony to bring a firearm onto any school premises. Firearm locks will only be given to adults, not students.

About the Firearm Storage Program

Jeffco Public Schools has partnered with our local law enforcement agencies to provide free firearm locks through a national organization called "Project Child Safe" which partners with law enforcement agencies across the country. These firearm locks are available at no cost to community members.
