ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Child safety seats are a child's best defense when riding in a vehicle. "It's important for a child to be in a seat and the seat to be properly installed,"said Crisp County Sheriff Scott Hawkins.
But they aren't protected unless they are properly restrained. "The purpose of the course is to try and familiarize parents with the safest way to have a child in the car," said State Patrol Officer Derrick Duckworth.
So the Department of Community Health is educating police officers about the proper usage of child restraint seats. "Folks just not knowing how to properly put their car seats or blatantly not using them," said Duckworth.
No greater evidence than a wreck in February in Wilcox County where three children were killed. Investigators say the children weren't restrained and were thrown from the vehicle. @
"As a parent that's lost a child and as an officer It's important to me to see that kids are restrained properly," said Duckworth. He recalls another wreck in which kids were killed because they weren't buckled into their child restraint seats.
