Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff Chris Bourke

ALBION – Orleans County Sheriff Chris Bourke is pleased to announce a Child Passenger Safety Seat Check Point Event will be held on Aug. 17 and Aug. 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Safety Building, 13925 Rt. 31, Albion.

According to data, vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1 to 13. Preventative measures, such as proper installation of car seats, booster seats and seat belts can reduce the likelihood of death and injuries. Informing and instructing parents and caregivers on child passenger safety and proper installation of car seats is critical to saving young lives.

Our certified child passenger safety technicians will inspect your car and/or booster seats to ensure that your child is in the appropriate seat for their size and age.

For child passenger safety seat questions, please contact certified technician Kevin Colonna at (585) 589-5527 or
