Seats for Kids Clinic
The Brockville Police and Seats for Kids partnered for a Car Seat clinic yesterday from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Canadian Tire parking lot on Parkedale Ave.
Of the 82 car seats checked:
• 14 seats were replaced by Seats for Kids (at no cost)
• 96% of the seats were being misused
• Only 4 of the 82 seats checked demonstrated proper use
Most common errors included the top tethers being too loose, seats not appropriate for the child’s age and development, loose installation straps, or the harness being too loose.
Seats for Kids are a Non-Profit organization from Ottawa dedicated to increasing the appropriate and correct use of child restraint systems. The organization also provides training for those who wish to volunteer with the organization and more information can be found at www.seatsforkids.ca
A 23 year old Brockville man is facing charges of robbery in connection with an incident at the Tim Horton’s on William Street from July 26th.
Yesterday morning a 24 year old woman attended to the Brockville Police station to report she was outside the Tim Horton’s when the man attempted to grab a bag she was carrying and wrestle it from her. Eventually she was able to fight back and recovery the bag.
The woman suffered minor injuries during the altercation.
Brockville Police received a call at approximately 5:15 pm yesterday afternoon from a concerned citizen reporting a man leaving a downtown residence well under the influence of alcohol.
As officers responded the suspect did leave the scene but located a short time later at a residence on William Street still in the vehicle. He showed signs of impairment by alcohol and was arrested for impaired driving and conveyed to the Brockville Police station for breath tests in which he registered well over the legal limit.
