City of Frankfort Installing Safe Haven Baby Box

The goal of the Safe Haven Baby Box is to provide a warm, safe place for parents to surrender their infants anonymously.

FRANKFORT, Ind. -- The city of Frankfort is getting a Safe Haven Baby Box.

The box is being installed this week at the Frankfort Fire Department on South Clay Street. 

It was funded by Center Township of Clinton County, according to WLFI-TV.

It's Indiana's 17th baby box and the 21st box nationwide. 

Indiana's Safe Haven law allows parents to surrender their healthy babies at any fire station in Indiana without fear of prosecution. The goal of the Safe Haven baby box is to provide a warm, safe place where mothers can surrender their babies anonymously.

Frankfort's baby box will be ready after 10 a.m. on Friday, according to WLFI.
