Free Car Seat Safety Inspection


The Berkeley Heights Police Department offers free car seat inspections and safety education by appointment.

As technology improves, so do the safety features on car seats. Proper installation and use of the car seat is important to make sure the seat is both comfortable for the child and does its job in a collision. During an inspection, Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will check car seats for recalls, check for proper fit and seat installation, discuss next steps, and answer questions or concerns the care giver has about car seat use and best practices.

To schedule a car seat inspection please email – Sgt. Andrew Glaydura at or Cpl. Don Maxwell at

•    Please bring both your vehicle and car seat owner’s manuals with you to your appointment.

•    If you are not able to bring your child with you to the appointment, check their height and weight beforehand so the technician can make sure the seat is a good fit.
