State Police Offers Child Safety Seat Installation

Did you know that nationally, it is estimated that nearly half of Child Safety Seats are installed INCORRECTLY?

Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 killer of children. Child Restraints function as a system to include the selection, direction and location of the child restraint. In addition, the harness must be correctly used at the appropriate tightness. Lastly, the child safety seat must be installed correctly, according to the manufacturer instructions in conjunction with the vehicle instructions. The complete system must be correct for the child safety seat to protect the child.

LSP has Troopers across the state certified to properly install child safety seats. Most Troops have a designated day during the week where certified technicians provide a free service installing child safety seats and educating caregivers. For more information regarding this service, please contact your local Public Information Officer at
