COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) is launching a new program, which aims to keep kids in cars safe. The program is called the Child Occupant Safety Program (COPP).

It's in partnership with Safe Kids Colorado Springs.

This program is going to give parents and caregivers in the community free car seat and booster installation checks. It's to make sure that those seats are 100% safe.

Appointments are available at all four CSPD substations throughout the city, which are at the following locations:

  • Sand Creek - 950 Academy Park Loop
  • Gold Hill - 955 W. Moreno Ave.
  • Falcon - 7850 Goddard St.
  • Stetson Hills - 4110 Tutt Blvd.

Editors Note: At the time of publishing this article, the title read as though that the Colorado Springs Police Department would be providing free car seats, this was incorrect, the CSPD will only be providing free car seat and booster seat installation checks. News5 apologizes for any confusion or inconvenience.
