Child ID and Courtesy Child Seat Safety Inspection Event (taking place during the Goddard School’s 3rd Annual Township-wide egghunt) – The Ocean County Sheriff’s Department and the Lacey Township Police Department are hosting a courtesy (non-enforcement) Child Seat Safety Checkpoint and Child ID station, this Saturday, April 8th, 2017. The Child Seat Safety Check will be held in the rear parking lot of Layton’s, located at 250 Lacey Road in Forked River (located across from the Goddard School, 214 Lacey Road) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Ocean County Sheriff’s Child ID station will be held in the parking lot of the Goddard School, located at 214 Lacey Road from 10 a.m. until 12 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 at Layton’s to conduct the courtesy child seat inspections of installed seats and to assist participants in the proper installations of child seats. 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 Child Seat Safety Inspection and Child ID events are being hosted by the Lacey Township Police Department and the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department. Child Seat Inspections are expected to take approximately 20 minutes per vehicle.
