Over 75% of parents are not properly installing their child's car seat. That means 3 out of 4 children are in danger if their vehicle is involved in a crash. The Madison County Sheriff's Office has multiple Deputies trained on proper child seat safety and installation. We also participate in multiple child seat safety check points throughout the County multiple times a year. Check back in for our updated flyer with the next Car Seat Safety Event.
You can request a speaker from the office of the sheriff for your group or organization. If available, a speaker can be arranged for any topic covering any of our programs. See this website for contact information.
