CHICAGO (CBS) -- Starting Saturday, Chicago police and the Cook County Sheriff's Office are teaming up to help keep cars safe from thieves. 

The first Vehicle Safety Day occurs at J & Salomon Auto Shop on Western between Cullom and Montrose from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. 

All kinds of safety help like steering wheel locks, catalytic converter etchings, and theft prevention information will be available.

"What this is really about, and this is key, is how do we empower each other to be safer. And this is what this Vehicle Safety Day does," said Glen Brooks, Director of Community Policing with the Chicago Police Department.

Participants can even sign up for a stolen vehicle tracking system from the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

There will be Vehicle Safety Days every week through the beginning of May.
