Community: FREE Child Safety Seat Inspections

Deputy checks two safety seats in vanSpecially trained and certified Sheriff's deputies check over 1,000 child safety seats every year and find that 80-90 percent have not been installed correctly. Either the safety seat was not properly secured in the vehicle or the child was not properly harnessed in the seat. To ensure that children are riding safely, the Sheriff ’s Office conducts FREE monthly child safety seat events at the Fairfax County Public Safety Center to instruct and assist parents and caregivers.

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.

In case of bad weather, please call 571-238-6153 to learn if the event has been cancelled.
