HPD offers parents car-seat safety tips

Some Hattiesburg-area parents got some valuable free tips on car seat safety at a local retailer this afternoon.

Hattiesburg Police, along with the Kids R Safe organization, checked car seats at the Highway 98 Super Walmart.  A certified child seat technician was available to demonstrate the proper way to install and maintain car seats.

She also answered questions about the subject.

Today's event was part of the national, "Child Passenger Safety Week."
