FREE Child Safety Seat Inspection
Specially trained and certified sheriff's deputies will help parents and caregivers ensure that a child fits securely in the safety seat and that the safety seat fits securely in the vehicle seat. These FREE inspections take place once a month on a Saturday.
Bring your vehicle and safety seat(s). Bring your child, too...if he or she is available!

Virginia law requires that ALL children up to age 8 must be in a child restraint device (which includes a booster seat).
The law also states that ALL rear-facing infant seats MUST be placed in the back seat of a vehicle. In the event the vehicle does not have a back seat, the rear-facing infant seat may be placed in the front passenger seat ONLY if the vehicle is either not equipped with a passenger side airbag or the passenger side airbag has been deactivated.
