Project Child Safe

The Fanwood Police Department in conjunction with the US Department of Justice and the National Sports Shooters Foundation is pleased to announce Project Child Safe. We will be providing gun locks to Fanwood residents FREE. If you own a firearm, whether a handgun,  rifle or shotgun, we can provide you with a cable locking device to help you secure the weapon. The locks are available at police headquarters. You must be a resident and supplies are limited.
