Child Safety Seat Inspection & Installation

Request an Inspection

The Police Department has several trained and certified child safety seat technicians available to inspect or help you install a 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 installation requires anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Allow additional time for multiple seat checks. Seat installations are accepted in order of priority calls.
