Police Work to Get Car Seats to Families in Need

Updated: Friday, October 18 2013, 12:47 AM EDT
HAMILTON, Ohio (WKRC) -- Local law enforcement officers have a plan to help keep children safer while they travel on Tri-State roads. The Hamilton Police Department is working to get child seats into the hands of those who can not afford them. Local 12's Adam Clements shares the latest steps to make sure the program is a success.

Sergeant Ed Buns says he noticed several children not in proper car seats when he would patrol near a Hamilton elementary school. He says he's seen the injuries to children, when they're not properly restrained. Instead of punishing them with a ticket, he worked to find a solution.

Several local businesses and residents have donated money to make sure families who are just trying to get by, can get a car seat or a booster seat. Evenflo is also helping out.

They hope to start passing out seats in the next few weeks.
