PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) – In order to help protect children, the Paragould Police Department is providing free car seats.

The department purchased a number of child car seats through their Strategic Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP). The goal is to make sure that everyone who needs a car seat has one and that the seat is properly installed.

"It's great when they come up here and we put them in, but it's very important that they know how to do that so that if they do take the seat out or if they do move the seat to grandma and grandpa's car, that they know how to put that in as well.  It's not as simple as run a seat belt through it and click it in," said Cpl. Jack Hailey.

Hailey said the car seats are going to go fast. If you are interested, stop by or call the Paragould Police Department.

Under Arkansas law, all children ages six and younger are required to be in a car seat.
