​​​​Mount Horeb Police Department

free gun locks

Project Child Safe is a nonprofit organization that promotes firearm safety in the home by using trigger locks.  They have once again generously provided our department with gun locks for you to help protect your loved ones.

According to the FBI and Centers for Disease Control, more preschoolers are dying where, in most incidents, children are finding their parent’s guns.

Talk to children about firearm safety.  Secure guns unloaded and secure the ammunition somewhere else. 

Stop by the police department Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to obtain your free gun locks.

What's going on around town

This line is staffed daily 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

After hours, leave a voicemail message with:

  • Your first and last name (please spell out)
  • Your callback number with area code
  • Deer location (road name, township, county)
  • Identify deer as buck, doe or fawn

By leaving a voicemail message, you are authorized by the DNR to take possession of the car-killed carcass.  You are required to take the WHOLE CARCASS, not just the head or other desired parts.

A DNR dispatcher will call you the next morning for additional information.  If you do not receive a call back by noon the following day, please call again to verify your voicemail was received.
