Burlington County Sheriff to take child safety seat checks on the road

In addition to regularly scheduled checks at the County Administration Building, upcoming checks will be in Marlton and Mt. Laurel.

Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield has announced that her department will be taking their child safety seat checks on the road by offering checkpoints in multiple locations to extend services to more residents.

“In addition to the checkpoints we hold at the County Administration Building each Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Sheriff’s Department has additional checkpoints planned for this year throughout the county,” Stanfield said. “Additionally, the night hours at the County Administration Building will be resuming from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Our goal is to provide busy parents this free service with additional locations and more flexible hours.”

Below are the scheduled check points:

Saturday, April 8 at the Mt. Laurel Fire Station, Station 363 located at 69 Elbo Lane in Mt Laurel from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Saturday, May 20 at St. Joan of Arch Parish, 100 Willow Bend Road in Marlton from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Our Child Passenger Safety Seat Program conducts hands-on training for parents and caregivers to ensure that their children’s safety seats are properly installed,” Stanfield said. “The Sheriff’s Department Child Safety Seat Team consists of State Certified Technicians who provide a one-on-one learning experience and also check child seats for safety concerns and recalls.”
