Milwaukee police free gun, wheel, bike locks giveaway

Milwaukee police have free gun locks, steering wheel locks, bike locks and locker combination locks available to those in need.

MPD said the locks were donated Tuesday, Aug. 9 by The Master Lock Company and "will help add an extra layer of protection to reduce the risk of being a victim of vehicle theft and bike theft" while also "ensuring that gun owners can safely secure their firearms."

To get a lock, simply contact any MPD station. They'll be available while supplies last.
