Child Safety Seats

Child Safety Seat Installations and Inspections

HighFiveforCarSeatSafetyThe Huntley Police Department provides free child safety seat inspections and installation assistance. Although there is no law requiring an inspection, we offer free inspections to ensure a safer installation. The child safety seat program is intended to educate parents how to properly install their child’s seat.

Car seat checks are provided by a Safety Seat Technician who is certified through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the installation of child safety car seats.

Over 90% of car seats are used incorrectly. Let us help you provide a safer ride for your child.


Requirements

  1. Program open to residents of Huntley, IL. If you do not live in Huntley, contact your local police station or try the station inspection locator.
  2. Checks and installations are conducted at the Police Station by appointment only. Contact Officer Juliano at ajuliano@huntley.il.us or 847-515-5404 to set your time.
  3. Please bring the manuals for both your vehicle and the car seat to help in proper installation.
  4. The child should also attend to ensure proper fitting of the harnesses.
  5. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, be sure to call to cancel or reschedule.


Other Child Safety Seat Considerations

  • Follow in the instructions and recommendations for the child seat.
  • Be sure your child is within the height and weight limits of the child seat.
  • Do not add “after market products” to the child seat that are not recommended by the manufacturer.
  • We do not recommend using child seats purchased from garage sales or resale shops– there is no way to tell if the seat was involved in a car accident.
  • Do not continue to use a child seat after it is involved in an accident – replace it to ensure your child’s safety.
  • Visit the NHTSA website for more information on car seat safety.
