A police detective speaks to GazetteXtra about why he is passionate about preventing sleeping infant deaths and how classes are helping educate the public.

“If a new parent could consider sleeping infant deaths as a household accident as opposed to a medical anomaly … we could reduce the number of those deaths,” Goth said. “I think if parents thought they had control of it, they would behave differently as parents. They would take that opportunity to do something different.”

So far, it seems to be working.
