Courtesy Child Seat Safety Inspections and Child ID – The Lacey Township Police Department is hosting a courtesy (non-enforcement) Child Seat Safety Check on Saturday August 19th, 2017, in the parking lot of the Play Day Place, located at 695 Challenger Way in Forked River (Lacey Business Park). The Child Seat Safety Inspection Event will take place during the “Child Safety Event” hosted by the Play Day Place. This event, including the courtesy child seat safety inspections, will be held from 10 a.m until 1 p.m. Specially trained certified child seat technicians from the Lacey Township Police Department and the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department will be on site to conduct a courtesy child seat inspection of installed seats and to assist participants in the proper installation of child seats. Inspections are expected to take approximately 20 minutes per vehicle.
The officers of the Lacey Township Police Department are dedicated to child safety. Over 80% of child safety seats currently installed in vehicles are either the wrong seats for the child being transported or are incorrectly installed. Technicians, will assist not only in the inspection of the seats but will also educate caregivers on the proper seat selection and installation.
The Ocean County Sheriff’s Department will be conducting free Child ID during this event. In addition, the Forked River and Lanoka Harbor Fire Departments and EMS, along with the Lacey Township Dive Team will be on location.
If anyone has any questions in regard to the Courtesy Child Seat Safety Inspections you may contact Lacey Township Police Lieutenant Paul Sullivan, Jr., at 609-693-6636 ext. 2577.
