Sumner County Sheriff’s Office Holds Safety Event for Children
Officers with the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office were on hand for the department’s second annual Child Safety Day on Saturday.
The event took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Triple Creek Park in Gallatin. While there were plenty of food and games on hand, officers made sure the focus remained on safety.
Deputies worked to help parents better understand how to install child safety seats and properly secure their children, as statistics show that around 70 percent of child safety seats aren’t installed properly or don’t fit the children who use them.
In addition to having techs on hand to help parents install car seats or check already installed car seats, participants could also check out driving simulators, a bicycle safety course, and an armored truck.
