The Michigan State Police, 5th Precinct Detroit Police Department, U.S Department of Veteran Affairs, John D. Dingell VA Medical Center,  Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Military Affairs, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Xi Beta Sigma Chapter, and the Chandler Park Conservancy are proud to announce a Gun Lock Giveaway event to be held on Saturday, June 29th, from 12 noon to 4 pm at Chandler Park, located at 12831 Frankfort, Detroit, MI.

This collaborative initiative aims to enhance firearm safety and prevent accidental gun-related injuries by providing free gun locks to the community. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from key speakers, including Jevon Johnson, 5th Precinct Commander; a representative from the Michigan State Police; and Dr. Dion Nathanial Johnson, from Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Military Affairs.

"Promoting gun safety is a critical aspect of our community outreach efforts," said Jevon Johnson, 5th Precinct Commander. "By distributing free gun locks, we hope to reduce the risk of accidental discharges and ensure that firearms are stored securely in homes across Detroit."

Gun locks are an essential tool in preventing unauthorized access to firearms, particularly by children. They serve as a simple yet effective measure to enhance the safety of gun owners and their families. This event underscores the commitment of all participating organizations to fostering a safer community.

In addition to the gun lock giveaway, the event will feature a resource booth for veterans, offering information and support on various services available to them. Refreshments will be served to all attendees.

After June 29th, citizens who are unable to attend the event can contact the 5th Precinct Detroit Police Department to arrange to pick up a gun lock.
