September 25th was National Car Seat Check Saturday so NWPD decided to hold a car seat inspection event at Police Headquarters with the assistance of Orange County Traffic Safety Programs. At the event, car seat technicians checked a total of 19 child seats to ensure they were installed properly and that the seats met safety standards.  A special thank you goes out to Traffic Safety Educators Kecia Healy and Doug Krauss for all the help! Thank you to everyone who stopped by the event and made it a success!

Do you have a child’s car seat or booster seat that needs to be inspected to ensure it is properly installed?  Stop by at our Car Seat Check Event this Saturday and see one of the Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians.  This event is sponsored by the Orange County Traffic Safety Program, the New Windsor Police Department and the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.

Officer Schettini saved a life yesterday with her quick response to the scene of a choking infant.  The 6-month old was limp and turning blue in the face when she arrived.

Her immediate actions in delivering a series of back blows between the infant’s shoulder blades resulted in the obstruction being cleared from his airway.  The infant then began to cry and breathe normally and he was transported to the hospital by NWEMS.  

Today, Officer Schettini returned to the scene to check on the infant and we took this photo.  Great job Officer Schettini we are all very proud of you!
