BROOKFIELD, Conn. -- Parents know to buckle up but three times out of four their child's safety seat is not installed properly, according to Brookfield police.
The department wants to improve these odds for local residents so three officers went for special training and certification and now qualify to conduct the child safety seat inspections.
This life saving free service is offered monthly, starting Wednesday, Feb. 1 by appointment.
