The Moore County Sheriff’s Office hosted a Safe Kids Child Safety Program at the Rick Rhyne Public Safety Center Saturday from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm.
The Safe Kids Mid-Carolinas Region is led by FirstHealth Community Health Services in partnership with Moore County Sheriff’s Office, local law enforcement and fire departments. Based on community needs, the coalition implements evidence-based programs, such as: car-seat checkups, safety workshops and sport clinics that help parents and caregivers prevent childhood injuries.
Moore County Sheriff’s deputy, deputy Tyler Cheek along with Amy Forester from First Health NC Safe Kids, Officer Whitlock – Pinehurst Police Department, LT Forester – Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, Officer Ricks – Rockingham Police Department, Officers Baddour and Brattford – Carthage Police Department, Crystal from the Moore County Health Department and Officer Tales of the Whispering Pines Police Department all came together to provide new car seats, assist in proper installation and educate parents on vehicle child safety.
Moore County citizens arrived the Rick Rhyne Public Safety Center and were greeted by the Team of Deputies, Officers and volunteers. In “pit-crew” efficiency, the Team greeted customers addressing all their child-safety needs.
This was the fourth event held here to give away and install car seats this year as a part of a grant from Graco Child Seat Grant.
