I am a certified car seat technician and a have a question for everybody in general. When I am doing a free seat check for the community in the parking lot of a store we often have some police officers there simply because many of them are certified as well and are helping with the event. When I am working I often see people drive by and nervously look at us then drive away. Its almost as if they are afraid to come in because they are scared of getting a ticket or something. I was wondering if this would bother you? If you were attending such an event would you feel more comfortable if the officer's were simply wearing a T-shirt that said Safe Kids on it? P.S. We DO NOT give tickets out. We help the parent install the seat and even if it was in incorrectly they leave without being in any trouble.

Oh, the cops now how to do this. I would love to have someone check mine. Can I just stop by the station?? And to your question, yes the shirts would help to decrease fear. Maybe hand out balloons for the kids as well, just to make it more festive or have someone face painting while the parents get the seats checked out. Again more festive and less intimidating, and the kids might bug them to come on down. Thank you for doing what you do.
