About Eddie Eagle Gun Safety
The Eddie Eagle Program is used to teach children and parents about the importance of gun safety. The program offers an interactive video program for several different age groups that also includes a student workbook and certificate of completion. The program is funded at no cost to city residents by a generous grant from the National Rifle Association.

Funding for the Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Program is provided at no cost
to city residents by a generous grant from the National Rifle
Association. The NRA offers several such training programs at no cost on
a first come first served basis to law enforcement agencies across the
nation. The NRA does not promote a gun rights or gun ownership agenda
with this program, but simply strives to aide law enforcement in
educating the public on the topic of general firearm safety.
The Danville Sheriff’s Office is actively pursuing several avenues of
funding to acquire an Eddie Eagle Mascot suite to further enhance the
teaching and interaction with area children. Inquiries about the future
of the program should be directed to Danville Sheriff Mike Mondul at the
Danville Sheriff's Office at 434-799-5135.
