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!

Questions about Safety Seat Saturday? Please email us. The Sheriff’s Office is not available to inspect safety seats separate from scheduled events.

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.
