Child Passenger Safety Seat Event in Nogales
The mission of the Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) is to protect human life and property by enforcing state laws, deterring criminal activity, and providing vital support to the State of Arizona and its citizens.
On Friday September 22, 2017, troopers and employees of the Department fulfilled that statement by helping to improve the safety of children traveling our state roads in cars and trucks.
Beginning at 8:30 in the morning, the troopers and employees, along with members of the Rio Rico Fire Department, officers from the Nogales Police Department, and employees from the Maricopa Health Clinic met in the parking lot of the Super Walmart in Nogales and held a child passenger seat safety clinic. For four hours, over 102 child passenger seats were inspected and properly installed in family vehicles. According to Trooper Cosme Ibarra, no other group in the state of Arizona has inspected and installed that many child passenger safety seats in one event.
Troopers Cosme Ibarra, Johnathan Barbeau, Grant Romrell, and Weaver Taylor, along with Motorists Assist Frank Cuen and Capitol Police Assistant Jeffrey Jarvis, worked towards the mission of the Department.
