On Sunday, September 30, 2018, the Marshalltown Police Department, and Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, hosted their annual child safety seat event. There were five certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Technicians working during the four hour event. At the end, a total of seventy-two seats were checked and inspected. Twenty new replacement seats were provided for recalled or expired seats.
This was one of the biggest events we had with the most seats checked during a four hour time frame. We were able to provide the public with information and education on the importance of child safety seats. A special thanks to Fareway for the use of their parking lot. We also thank City Council person Al Hoop and the Mid Iowa Regional Board of Realtors for donating towards the purchase of new child seats.
For those that missed the event, but would like a FREE child seat inspection, you can call the Marshalltown Police Department at 641.754.5725 to schedule an inspection.
