The Detroit Police Department is aiming to help gun owners with an upcoming event. 

This event is all about educating gun owners on firearm safety to help prevent accidents.

Proper storage, we're told, is the best way to prevent accidents involving guns.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig will be joined by the National Shooting Sports Foundation later today where they'll be talking about firearm safety and proper storage and misuse of guns.

The goal here is to promote the safe use of any firearm and help the community by handing out gun locks and information.

The event will be held outside Detroit Public Safety Headquarters on Third Street at 3 p.m. today.
