MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - If you'd like to double check to see if your child's car seat is installed properly, you can get free help from experts the week of September 14 through September 18.
That's because the Midland Police Department will have certified technicians available to ensure your child's seat is ready to go and safe to use.
Officers will tell parents if the car seat is installed correctly, if the seat should be rear or forward-facing and if it's time for your child to switch to a booster seat. They will also be providing car seat safety tips.
Residents who are in need of a car seat may also be able to get one, thanks to a grant obtained by MPD which gave the department a limited number of child safety seats. If you request a car seat, your child must be present as well.
