Abbotsford Police officers participate in the Buckle Your Babies campaign

Abbotsford Police Department (APD) has combined road safety with the spirit of the holiday season by launching the “Buckle Your Babies – Christmas Edition.”

Const. Ian MacDonald said the objective of the program is to keep children safe in vehicles and to put a smile on their faces as well.

APD officers and British Columbia Automobile Association staff will be checking vehicles and handing out gifts and goodie bags to the children they come across during the brief inspections.

Two local retailers have donated the presents and snacks for the kids.

MacDonald said the “Buckle Your Babies” initiative has taken place at various locations and various times over the last several years but this is the first time it has coincided with the holidays.

“We are pleased to be delivering improved safety, education and a positive interaction with kids at Christmas time,” he said.
