• Safe Gun Storage Saves Lives!

    The Texas Department of Public Safety now has a new educator toolkit on SafeGunStorageTexas.com with materials for schools to download. Print or share these materials at your school as you see fit to help communicate the importance of safe gun storage at home, especially during the holiday season. Thank you for helping to get this important message out to people in your community.


    The Texas School Safety Center has created a flyer with a link to the new educator toolkit and a sample parent letter template that districts may adapt to introduce the resources and provide parents with information on section 46.13 of the Penal Code.

    As required by Texas Education Code 37.222, the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC), in collaboration with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), is providing these resources to each school district and open-enrollment charter school. Districts must provide information and resources regarding the safe storage of firearms including information on section 46.13 of the Texas Penal Code to the parent or guardian of each student enrolled in the district or school. The TxSSC recommends providing this information at least twice annually.
