Safe Firearms Storage Campaign
The Safe Firearms Storage campaign encourages firearms owners to make safe firearms storage a priority. To encourage current and prospective firearm owners to safely lock up their weapons when they’re not in use, the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) created a new public service advertising (PSA) campaign developed in partnership with the Ad Council and funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).

The National Crime Prevention Council selects annual themes for Crime Prevention Month based on crime trends and local feedback. NCPC works with national partners to provide free, online resources to help communities address these trends locally. Resources—training programs, blogs, podcasts, downloadable education materials, and links—will help law enforcement, crime prevention practitioners, and community groups plan and implement CSC events during Crime Prevention Month or throughout the year. Budgets are tight, so it’s more important than ever to emphasize prevention by recognizing past successes, organizing new CSC events, and planning for the future.
