Project Child Safe: Your Linn County Sheriff’s Office is happy to join Project Child Safe in spreading the word about gun safety in the home.

With the help of Project Child Safe, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office has compiled a Gun Safety Kit that will be made available to all those interested. These kits will include a gun lock, brochures on gun safety in the home as well as other goodies from the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.

The kits will be available at the Sheriff’s Office Lebanon Sub Station (2590 S. Main Rd) and the Linn County Sheriff’s Office (1115 SE Jackson St, Albany) beginning January 28th – February 14th from 9AM-4PM while supplies last.

The kits will also be available at the Linn County Sheriff’s Office booth at the upcoming Sportsman Show at the Linn County Fairgrounds from February 15th-February 18th.

For more information, or to request kits for those unable to pick up from these locations, contact Community Service Specialist Michael Mattingly at 541-917-9182 or
