Conway police use creative approach to stop heat deaths

Posted: Updated:

Conway police plan to use a creative program to get the message out that "The Heat Kills", when it comes to children left inside cars. 

Local car dealerships are letting police use their cars to display large signs warning passersby of the dangers of heat, with thermometers inside showing how hot it gets. 

According to LaTresha Woodruff, Public Information Officer for Conway Police, twenty one children have already died this year due to heatstroke after being left in a vehicle – that number rose to thirty three last year
