The Amherst Police Department is committed to keeping our community, and especially our children, safe. In an effort to accomplish this, we have partnered with Project ChildSafe to encourage gun owners to practice safe and responsible firearms ownership and storage through the distribution of firearms safety kits free of charge to gun owners.
Residents of Amherst
may come by the Amherst Police Department at any time to obtain a free
safety kit that includes a safety brochure that covers a variety of
options for firearms storage and a free cable-style gun lock. Questions
regarding the program may be forwarded to Sgt. Brian Daly either via email or at 413-259-3008.
