The car seat check event will take place from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, Sept. 26 at the Caddo Sheriff’s Safety Town on 8910 Jewella Ave.
Nationally certified car seat technicians from Louisiana State Police Troop G and the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force will be checking car seats and teaching parents and caregivers the correct way to use and install them.
