That safe they use is a toy with an external hinge.  My son's Canon safe is about 400 pounds has 11 ga steel and ten of those huge bolts.  Looks like this Canon safe:

The bad part is no one can get into it, not even him, but it is very safe.

After all attempts at opening the safe are exhausted, I would do this to get the contents out:

 

Lay the safe on it's back. Drill a  2" hole in one corner of the bottom of the safe. Insert a 8 ga nibbler into that hole and cut a hole big enough to pass contents through.

20-20 hindsight... take everything out when you change the battery and test a few times before replacing contents.

That safe is a toy.  See my most directly upstream, my son's safe is the size of a Khorn and weighs 400 pounds.

I asked him about that.  He said the battery was already too low and he couldn't open the safe.  His only option was to change the battery with the door already locked and closed.

They should have a totally mechanical way of getting it open, short of angle grinder. That's just crazy.

=== not to disparage the quality of your sons safe ( I feel his pain as my son is also in LE)  but size/weight alone do not qualify it as a quality safe. I have an AMSEC (American Security) safe about the size between a Forte and Cornwall that weighs around 500 lbs. and took three people, a pickup truck with a 3 ton strap attached to the hitch and wrapped around the safe to slowly lower it down basement steps. Safes have several ratings and those rated for general consumer use are indeed “toys”. Most gun safes purchased at retail are RSC rated - residential security container - meaning it will take an intruder at least 5 minutes to gain entry. Enough protection to keep an average dope head with a screwdriver and hack saw from gaining entry but that’s about it. Those that are prepared will peel that safe open like a banana. Get a safe with at least a TL 15 or 30 rating.

If it hasn't been tried yet, turn the handle clockwise. While keeping pressure on the handle, enter the code. After the beeps, turn the handle counterclockwise and (hopefully) open...

Thanks.  I'll cut and paste your suggestion and send it to him.

No Canon safes have a key backup for security reasons.  Ask you son if he remembers using the # sign at the end of his old code.  I would give this a try with the factory code

I sent him your suggestion.  His keypad doesn't have a #, just numerals, Clear and something else, it looks like some " " marks in his reply.
