The City of Sault Ste. Marie Police Department distributes gun locks to residents free of charge when they are available. The Department frequently has locks to distribute, but not always.
You may call the Police Records office at (906) 632-5744 or stop by the police station at 325 Court Street, during regular business hours (M-F, 7am - 5pm) to inquire if locks are currently available.
You might also want to try the Chippewa County Sheriff Department Business Office at (906) 635-6355 (also at 325 Court Street) to see if they have any available.
The City of Sault Ste. Marie is committed to the safety of our community and we want to remind you that gun locks are also available in the sporting goods section of many retail stores. We are pleased to be able to distribute free locks from time to time; however, the lack of available FREE gun locks should never deter you from using locks on all your firearms - particularly when children are in the home.
