Anaheim, Calif. – Anaheim PD received a $74,250 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) to support our efforts in educating parents and caregivers about the importance of child safety seats and making sure that every child in our community travels safely.
“Child Passenger Safety is one of the top priorities for Anaheim PD’s Traffic Section. This grant will assist us in continuing to provide the highest level of service to our community,” said Anaheim Chief of Police Rick Armendariz.
Funds will be used for a variety of community outreach events, education classes, distribution of child safety seats, and training on the installation and use of child safety seats.
The car seat safety program includes:
- Child safety seat inspection events and education classes
- Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) training and recertification courses.
- Child safety seats at no cost for families in need.
- Partnering with local organizations on car seat safety community outreach efforts in underserved communities
The program runs through September 2024.
Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
