New Law Requires Officers to Lock Up Handguns Left in Vehicles

Wednesday, September 28, 2016


A New California law will now require all Law Enforcement Officers to lock away their handguns when left in an unattended vehicle. Senate Bill 869 updates an already existing state law which requires civilians who leave their handguns in their car to store them securely in a lockbox attached to the vehicle or the vehicles trunk, and out of plain view.  

California SB 869 is a matter of safety for the public and law enforcement officers.  With recent incidents involving handguns stolen from law enforcement vehicles and then used to commit crimes, SB 869 officially goes into effect on January 1st, 2017.  

While there are many products that lock your weapon up, it also must be secured to the vehicle to comply with SB 869.  The entire line of Rockland's Law Enforcement Weapons Drawers are securely mounted using our Rock Solid Platforms.  With a variety of locking options and finishes, your weapon will remain locked, secure; keeping you in compliance with SB 869.
