Child Safety Seat

Child Safety Seat Installation & Inspection Program

The Deerfield Police Department has 6 Certified Car Seat Technicians on staff. The Technicians can answer questions about car seats over the phone, give suggestions about where to place a child seat in a vehicle, advise what type of seat is needed for your child and teach you how to install your child's car seat. A Car Seat Technician can also inspect your car seat, and assist in reinstalling if it is not installed correctly. This is done by appointment only.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with one of our Certified Car Seat Technicians please dial 847-945-8636, ext. 7645 and leave a message. A Technician will return your call and schedule the appointment. You can expect your appointment to last 30 minutes or longer.

Due to the nature of our work, we can only inspect car seats by appointment. This service is provided free of charge for Deerfield residents only and proof of residency is required at the time of your appointment.
