The Nevada Highway Patrol's Southern Command is hosting a free car safety seat check Saturday.

It will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 4615 W. Sunset Road, near Decatur Boulevard.

NHP through a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety will start training all cadets that graduate the Highway Patrol Academy to be Child Passenger Safety Technicians.

This is the first time NHP has made this a requirement for cadets. NHP is the only law enforcement agency in the state training officers to be Child Passenger Safety Technicians before they are certified
to work the road.
