After last week’s tragic shooting in Belgrade, all of Gallatin Counties’ Law Enforcement leaders have agreed to provide our patrol deputies and officers with gun locks in their vehicles. We respond to families in crisis on a daily basis and in many cases there are firearms in the house. We will offer and provide the locks to anyone interested.
All of your local police departments, highway patrol and Sheriff’s Office in this county will work together to ensure there is a lock available when requested. The new gunlocks are combination, not keyed. We encourage people to not write the combination down and only provide it to people that should have access.
