Police Dept. Hosting Free Child Car Seat Check

Safety first.

When you become a mother or a father, this is almost certainly becomes your life motto. And if you regularly find yourself navigating your way through traffic, whether it’s on Route 42 or Clements Bridge Road or even on a less-busy side street, you’re well aware that accidents happen on the road.

With all of that in mind, the Deptford Police Department is offering a free service this weekend to ensure you and your child’s safety. The police department, along with the Gloucester County Sheriff’s department and Nemours DuPont Pediatrics, is hosting a free child car seat check next Saturday (Oct. 6) from 10 a.m. to noon at Nemours facilities on 1280 Almonesson Road.

Police officials will be at the event to answer any questions and help ensure your seats are safe. Additionally, car seat technicians will be on hand to check your child seats out, too.

Why risk the possibility that your seat isn’t installed properly – we all know they can be complicated! – when a free service like this is being provided?
