Prince George’s County Police Conducts Fifth Car Seat Check-up

Prince George’s County, Maryland… The Prince George’s County Police Department, in partnership with the Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union, will conduct its fifth car seat check-up on Friday, February 17, 2012, at the Office of Central Services.  The car seat check-up, a component of the community outreach and vehicle traffic safety program, is free and open to the public.

Certified car seat technicians will be on hand to check for recalls, ensure that child passenger car seats and boosters are installed correctly, and that the harness and vehicle installation are correct for the child.  The service is free, takes about 30 minutes and involves drivers, parents and caretakers in the check-up.  The Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union will replace the first six car seats that have been recalled or are unsafe.  All car seats must be installed upon arrival at the car seat check-up site.  Appointments are not necessary.
