HILLIARD (WCMH) — When Hilliard Officer Schweickart noticed two kids weren’t properly restrained, he decided to do something about it.
According to a post on the Hillard Division of Police Facebook page, during a recent traffic stop, Schweickart observed three children in the vehicle. An 8-month old was properly restrained, however a 2 and 3-year-old were not in car seats.
After the traffic stop, Schweickart went to a nearby store and bought the family two additional car seats with his own money. He then tracked down the family and gave them the car seats.
