Sheriff's Office Alert:
Specially trained and certified Sheriff's deputies check over 1,000 child safety seats every year and find that 80-90 percent have not been installed correctly. Either the safety seat was not properly secured in the vehicle or the child was not properly harnessed in the seat. To ensure that children are riding safely, the Sheriff ’s Office conducts FREE monthly child safety seat events at the Fairfax County Public Safety Center to instruct and assist parents and caregivers.
