Child Passenger Safety Law Enforcement Materials
To help police officers provide parents with the most up-to-date child passenger safety information for their state, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) partnered with GHSA to create these materials for State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) and their law enforcement grantees.
The materials contain important child passenger safety information that parents can use to keep their kids safe. GHSA Members are encouraged to share these resources with their local law enforcement partners, who can in turn distribute to parents in their communities.
