Danvers Police has received money from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety, Highway Safety Division, to buy child passenger safety seats.
"The program aims at educating parents and caregivers on the proper installation and usage of child safety seats. With the goal of reducing fatalities and injuries, federally-approved car seats are distributed to residents in need," said Danvers Police.
Massachusetts requires all children who are riding in a motor vehicle to be in a federally-approved child passenger restraint that is properly fastened and secured until they are 8 years old or more than 57 inches tall.
"If you are a primary caregiver and are in need of a properly fitting safety seat, please contact the DPD at 978-774-1213 ext 124 to schedule an appointment with one of our Child Passenger Safety Technicians," said Danvers Police.
