Eddie Eagle Gun Safe Program

The DeSoto County Sheriff's Department offers the "Eddie Eagle Gun Safe Program" to schools. This is a fun and educational program that is focused on kids, Pre-K, 1-4th grade.  It teaches them to: 

  • Stop!
  • Don't Touch!
  • Runaway!
  • Tell a Grown-up!

Children are very curious at a young age and do not understand the dangers of a firearm found in the home or laying on the ground.  We are hoping to change that and save lives.

The training last approximately 45minutes.  If you are interested in having the program taught to your class, please contact Deputy Alex Coker at (662) 469-8786 or at acoker@desotocountyms.gov
