“Our Child Passenger Safety Seat Program conducts hands-on training for parents and caregivers to ensure that their children’s safety seats are properly installed,” Sheriff Stanfield continued. “The Sheriff's Department Child Safety Seat Team consists of State Certified Technicians who provide a one-on-one learning experience and also check child seats for safety concerns and recalls."

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, research on the effectiveness of child safety seats shows their use can reduce fatalities for children under one-year-old by 71% and for toddlers (ages 1-4) by 54%. If used properly a child safety restraint can reduce the need for hospitalization among children 4 years of age and under by 69%.
