Albany --  South Georgia law enforcers and medical and school employees work together to make sure your children are safe in your car.

Parents brought their cars to Albany's Toys-R-Us Friday afternoon to make sure their safety seats are strapped down correctly. Twenty public safety and government employees worked the check as their final test in a 4-day safety training session by the Georgia Traffic Injury Prevention Institute.

The trainees included Dougherty County Police HEAT officers, Albany Police, Sheriff's Deputies from Tift and Turner Counties, health department employees, and Sumter County School transportation employees.   

"What we've found is about 96 percent of all child restraints are used incorrectly. With an average of three major errors, that could in fact damage, injure, or even result in a fatality in the event of a crash," says Safe Communities Coordinator Michele DeMott.   

All the workers who took part are now certified in the State's child safety seat regulations.
