When properly installed, child safety seats reduce the risk of death in a motor vehicle crash by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers. Safety belts reduce the risk of death or serious injury in a motor vehicle crash by up to 50%.
Officers Kyle Griffin and Rich Habr graduated from a week long course on the proper installment of child safety seats. According to the Governor's Highway Safety Bureau, 90% of all child car seats that are installed, are installed incorrectly.
Officers Griffin and Habr are available to assist parents with the proper installation of their car seats. However, they offer this service in addition to their normal duties as patrol officers, so we ask that you please call the station in advance to set up and appointment.
To schedule an appointment, call 508.668.1095.
