Jackson County Traffic Safety Unit Assisted LSPD

On 03-18-21, members of the Jackson County Traffic Safety Unit assisted LSPD with a motor vehicle crash on US-50 near Blackwell Road. During the course of the incident, Deputies helped make sure the occupants of both vehicles were not injured. While speaking with the occupants of one of the vehicles, it was discovered that there were five children, all in child safety seats in the vehicle. All the children and their parents were secured in patrol vehicles in order to keep them warm and dry. It was discover by one of the Deputies that the family had fell on tough times as many of us have in the last year and was concerned with the cost of five new child safety seats. The family has to travel out of state for a family funeral and was concerned with getting the child safety seats as well. Deputies arranged with the Jackson County Deputies Association FOP Lodge 50 Chapter 3 for the purchase for all five child safety seats. The safety seats were delivered to the family by members of the Traffic Safety Unit at a local hospital where the children were being checked over. 

Please remember if you are involved in a motor vehicle crash, the child safety seat in your vehicle are no longer reliable and safe for your child to travel in.
