DANSVILLE –The Livingston Sheriff’s Office is teaming up with the Cornell Cooperative and surrounding law enforcement agencies as they set up a car seat checkpoint to confirm with parents that their car seats are in good condition and well adjusted for their individual children.
The checkpoint will be held on September 20 at Noyes Memorial Hospital at 111 Clara Barton Street in Dansville, from 10a.m. to 2p.m. Anyone can stop in and have their child safety seats checked to ensure they are properly installed and safe in the vehicle.
“As always, we need to try our very best to protect our children from injury and death,” said Sheriff Dougherty in a press release. “Something as simple as a properly installed car seat may make that difference for any child.”
Sheriff Dougherty added that interested parents must bring their child along for the ride. Deputies always love to meet new faces, and they need to make sure that each car seat is suited for the individual child’s height and weight to maximize its protection.
If you have any questions about the program, you can contact Sheriff Deputy Timothy Sweeting at (585) 243-7921.
