Child Safety Seat Detail Madison County

(Richmond, KY) -- On Saturday, April 27th, the officers from the CVE division of the Kentucky State Police had the unique opportunity to participate in the Single Mom's Oil and Car Service Day. This event was sponsored by the First Baptist Church in Richmond, KY. The officers from Region 5 and Region 4, who are trained as child safety seat technicians, were able to inspect and install safety seats for mothers and grandmothers that came by to have their vehicles serviced.
There were 125 vehicles serviced by the program, with all drivers given literature and receiving tips on the installation of the seats. The CVE officers were also able to teach mothers how to properly install the child safety seats in the future. This is one more way that CVE officers are reaching out to their communities to ensure the people that their safety is our utmost importance. There are going to be more programs like this in the future where officers give of their time to serve in ways not typical to what people would normally expect.
