Father-to-be Trevor Wong had questions about installing and using a car seat in his vehicle. Mercer Island Police Department officers Chase Hawley and Anna Ormsby, who have received certification training in this area, assisted him, according to a post on the Mercer Island Police and Emergency Management Facebook page on Sept. 6.
Wong said he found out that MIPD does this through the Safe Kids CPS Technician program. Learn more at www.cert.safekids.org.
