Auburn Hills Police Chief Requesting Child Seat Donations

essentialTOPtempAuburn Hills Police Chief royal_servicesRequesting Child Seat Donations

(Auburn Hills Police Chief Doreen Olko, Feb. 12, 2015)

Every now and then I get a call from a service club representative or a resident asking us if they can provide us with stuffed animals for children.  Thanks to the generosity of many people we are well ctechadsupplied with toys for children that we come into contact with.

What we REALLY need are child car seats.  We have given away all the seats we have and need some new ones.  We can’t take used seats -they have to be new in the box.  As Officer Brian Miller, our safety seat technician, pointed out to me, the convertible type seats are the first choice.  Families have infant seats because they can’t take the baby from the hospital without one.  But then as the child outgrows the infant seat, they can’t afford the next level seat.  Here is a website that gives more information.

We can ticket drivers who don’t have their child in an appropriate safety seat –but if they can’t afford a seat, we want to be able to provide one.  If you can help us out, call me or drop off a new seat at our station.  Remember  –it must be new, sealed in a box. Sorry but we can’t take any used seats.

Here is an example from Target –about $50.

Our police and fire personnel do child safety seat checks here at our station by appointment.  Call 248-370-9444 to schedule.
