NCSO HEAT Unit to answer questions about child safety seats in 2-day event

COVINGTON, Ga. - Newton County Sheriff Ezell Brown invites the citizens of Newton County to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety caravan event hosted by Newton County Sheriff’s Office HEAT Unit.  The purpose of the event is to educate and inform the public on child safety seats. 

The two-day event will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26 at Kroger, at 3700 Salem Road in Covington.  The second day of the event will run from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at Walmart, at 4200 Salem Road in Covington.

Each deputy assigned to the HEAT Unit is CPS Certified (Child Passenger Safety). This certification allows our deputies to check child safety seats for expiration, damages and improper installation. 

During this event, the public will have the opportunity to ask questions as it relates to child safety seats.  If desired, a deputy will inspect any car seat and provide feedback. NCSO will have an information booth set up at the front entrance the day of the event. There will be a designated location for your child’s seat to be inspected (look for our HEAT Unit vehicles).
