Child Safety Seat Installation Training

Four DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies have completed training on Child Safety Seat Installation through Buckle Up Louisiana!  Over the course of four days (40 hours of training,) deputies joined nurses and medical staff members from North Louisiana to be certified in how to properly install a child car seat in rear or front facing positions, booster seat safety, anchoring to the vehicle properly, use of tether, airbag safety, growth of child as it pertains to the seat, and much more.

DeSoto Parish residents can benefit from this certification by setting up an appointment for car seat inspection.  If you would like a deputy to check your car seat installation, or teach you how to properly install one, you may call our main office at 318-872-3956 to setup an appointment with Capt. Chato Atkins.  As a reminder, we are not an installation service.  Our deputies have been trained to educate the public and assist with safety inspections.  Appointments can be made for the Mansfield, Stonewall, or Logansport locations!
