Car Seat Safety

COVID-19 UPDATE

Car seat safety services are again being offered (no longer suspended), as of the week of May 26th.

All participants must wear a face mask/covering and subject to a temperature check. Please see details below to schedule your appointment. Please call to cancel your appointment if you are experiencing symptoms of illness.

 

 

Proper car seat installation is essential to ensuring your child's safety in a vehicle.  Many parents unintentionally install seats incorrectly without even knowing it. 

Glastonbury Police Department offers child safety seat inspections, conducted by our Certified Child Safety Seat Technicians, to residents of the Town of Glastonbury.  Inspection appointments are available most Thursdays between Noon and 5:00 pm.  

Please click on the link below to sign up for an appointment to meet with our Certified Child Safety Seat (CSS) technicians.

PLEASE NOTE: It is important to attempt to install the CSS yourself prior to having it inspected. A CSS inspection is not meant to be an install service but an educational opportunity for the caregiver.  It is not a one-time install/check with a “set it and forget it” mindset.  The caregiver should be checking the CSS every time a child is placed in it for transport.  The caregiver needs to know how to properly check the seat in order to ensure safe operation. Thank you!

You may contact Officer Magrey at 860-652-4286 or michael.magrey@glastonbury-ct.gov with any questions.
