Child Safety Seat Inspection

Request an Inspection

The Police Department has several trained and certified child safety seat technicians available to inspect your child safety seat in your vehicle. Please call the Police Department at (847) 438-9050 prior to stopping by to make sure that there is a technician available to assist you.

Before Coming In

  • Please remove the child safety seat from the box and attempt to install it yourself prior to coming in. The child safety seat program is supposed to be an instructional / helpful tool for parents.
  • Bring your vehicle's owners manual as well as the child safety seat manual with you.
  • A typical inspection requires anywhere from 15-20 minutes. Allow additional time for multiple seat checks. Inspections are accepted in order of priority calls.
