The Southampton Town Police Department will perform child passenger safety checks Sunday, Sept. 15, from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Target parking lot in Riverhead.

A certified technician will check infant, convertible and booster seats to make they are properly installed.

The free checks are part of Child Passenger Safety Week, which runs Sept. 15 through 21, and encourages proper child safety seat installation, as 70% of child safety seats are installed incorrectly.

For more information, call 631-728-5000.

Correction: This announcement originally had the wrong day of the week. It’s Sunday, Sept. 15, not Saturday. We apologize.
