Perris, Calif. – As part of Child Passenger Safety Week, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station wants to make sure your child is in the right child safety seat.

Child Passenger Safety Week is Sept. 19-25 and focuses on educating parents and caregivers about the importance of choosing, installing, and using the correct car seat.

On September 23rd The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station will have certified child passenger safety technicians on hand at 137 N. Perris Blvd Perris, California to help parents install car seats. The technicians will demonstrate the correct way to install the seat, as well as determine the appropriate seat based on the child’s age and size.

“Your plate is always full as a parent, but the goal for this week is to offer parents and caregivers the time to make sure their child is as safe as possible in the car,” Sergeant Hibbler said.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among children, and nearly half of car seats (46%) are misused.

California law requires a child to be properly secured in a safety seat until they are at least 8 years of age.  Children 8 and older, who are at least 4 feet, 9 inches in height, may ride in the back seat of a vehicle in a properly fitted safety belt. Children under the age of 2 must ride rear-facing or until they reach 40 pounds or 40 inches in height.

To learn more about the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department car seat program, Contact: Sergeant Hibbler from the Perris Station at 951-210-1082.

To search for car seat programs in your county, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) has a dropdown menu on the OTS website. You may also contact your local CHP area officeto schedule a free safety seat inspection.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
