Firearms Trigger Locks Available at the Police Department

The Falmouth Police Department along with support from Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence, Maine Medical Association, the Maine Chiefs of Police Association, and other organizations, are pleased to announce the free distribution of firearms trigger locks to the public.

The trigger locks will be available to residents of Falmouth at the Police Department at 2 Marshall Drive. The goal of the program is help families insure that all guns are securely locked, especially when children are in the home. We also want to be sure that no gun is left unlocked because a family cannot afford a trigger lock. Ten years ago, in a program applauded nationally, Maine Citizens Against Handgun Violence distributed over 20,000 trigger locks. In renewing the program, the organization has committed to making up to 5,000 trigger locks available.
