~Child Passenger Safety Week~
Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. The goal of Child Passenger Safety Week is to make sure all parents and caregivers are correctly securing all children in the right car restraints.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SEAT:
-Birth to 12 months: Your child should always ride in a rear-facing car seat.
-1-3 Years: Keep your child rear-facing as long as possible until he or she reaches the top height or weight limit allowed by the car seat’s manufacturer.
4-7 Years: Keep your child in a forward-facing car seat that is equipped with a harness and tether until he or she reaches the top height or weight limit allowed by the car seat’s manufacturer.
8-12 Years: Keep your child in a booster seat until he or she is big enough to fit in a seat belt properly with the belt resting snugly across the upper thighs, not the stomach.

On September 11, 2014, Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Troopers were notified of a murder suspect that was in the area of Interstate 95 and Interstate 295 in Duval County. Several units responded to the area in an attempt to make contact with the suspect. In Nassau County, FHP Sergeant Waters positioned his patrol car to observe northbound traffic on Interstate 95. Sergeant Waters observed the suspect vehicle traveling northbound past his location and followed it until backup units could arrive in the area.

The suspect vehicle continued northbound along Interstate 95 into Georgia where responding Georgia authorities took the lead. Authorities were able to stop the vehicle and arrest the suspect at mile marker 6 in Georgia.

This is an excellent example of different law enforcement agencies (and states) working together!
