Safe Gun Storage

  • The safety and security of staff, students and visitors in our schools is a top priority in District 211. As part of our ongoing commitment to the security of all, we are partnering with our local police departments to promote the availability of gun locks that are free to the public.

    Each police department has gun locks available to residents at no charge. 

    Additionally, our School Resource Officers are equipped with a limited number of locks they can distribute if requested. School Resource Officers, or SROs, are active uniformed police officers employed by our police departments who serve as an added support in our schools.

    To obtain a lock through the police department, please use one of the numbers below.

    Hoffman Estates Police Department: 847-781-2800

    Palatine Police Department: 847-359-9000

    Schaumburg Police Department: 847-882-3534
