Car Seat Checks and Installations
Statistics show that 4 out of 5 car seats are installed incorrectly. Accidents are also the leading cause of death for children under the age of 13. It is for this reason that it is extremely important to ensure that your child's car seat is installed and used correctly. The Swatara Township Police Department currently has 5 police officers who are certified as Car Passenger Seat Technicians (CPST). Not only do we show you how to install the car seat correctly but we also educate you on proper child restraint with the car seat harness/seatbelt. Parents/guardians are also informed about turn around time and various other safety measures when traveling with a child. Having the opportunity to install your car seat with a CPST will provide you with the confidence and reassurance that your child will be traveling safely each time you get into the vehicle.
We offer car seat installations and checks to both residents and non-residents of Swatara Township and Paxtang Borough. Each installation/check takes approximately 20-30 minutes from start to finish. There is no cost to have this completed. Car seat installations/checks are conducted by appointment only. We can accommodate most schedules to include day time, evening and weekend hours. To make an appointment please contact Cpl. Brandon Pokrop via phone at 717-564-2550 OR via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
