The Crystal Lake Police Department offers free child safety seat inspections by Department members that are certified child seat technicians.
All child seats must be installed by the parent or caregiver prior to arrival at the Crystal Lake Police Department. Seats will be inspected by technicians and corrections recommended. This is an educational service as opposed to an installation service. Surveys indicate that 90% of all child safety seats are not properly installed. This educational service is provided to increase awareness of the dangers of not installing a child seat correctly and reduce the risk of serious injury to children in the event of a motor vehicle crash.
Child safety seats are inspected by appointment only. Please call the Department at (815) 356-3620 to schedule an inspection.
Questions can be directed to Officer Pluviose at (815) 356-3731 or his email.
