The Troy Police participated in the Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Week law enforcement campaign conducted Sept. 15-21, 2013. During the enforcement effort, officers made several contacts, as well as, gave several warnings for other violations.

Missouri law requires all children under the age of eight to be in an appropriate child safety seat or booster seat unless they are 80 lbs. or 4’9” tall.

“It’s so important for parents and caregivers to understand the importance of child restraints,” said Jeff Taylor, Chief. “It’s not just about following the law, child restraints help prevent serious injury and may even save your child’s life.”

Funding for this effort was provided through a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Traffic and Highway Safety Division.
