MDOT MVA, Law Enforcement Partners Remind Marylanders to Check Child Safety Seats Often


GLEN BURNIE, MD (June 14, 2021) – Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Secretary Greg Slater and MDOT Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) Administrator Chrissy Nizer joined together this month to announce the donation of 50 child safety seats from MDOT MVA’s Highway Safety Office to the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) and several other law enforcement agencies across the state. The donation is part of the continued effort to ensure all jurisdictions have valid child safety seats available to officers if they find themselves needing to transport children.

“We all must work together to protect our youngest and most vulnerable passengers,” MDOT Secretary Greg Slater said. “Our children deserve to be in the right seat. A properly installed child safety seat is the first line of defense in the event of a crash – and may save your child.”

The child safety seat donations were made possible through a partnership between MDOT MVA’s Highway Safety Office, Maryland Institute of Emergency Medical Systems Services (MIEMSS) and the Maryland Department of Health’s Kids in Safety Seats (KISS) initiative. At a June 1 event at the BPD Headquarters, Secretary Slater and Administrator Nizer were joined by MDOT MVA’s Highway Safety Office Director Dr. Tim Kerns, BPD Sgt. Kenneth Deluca, BPD Lt. Col Monique Brown, BPD Major Milton Corbett and BPD Sgt. Paul McMillian for a donation of nine seats to BPD.
