Child Safety Seat Inspection and Installation

The Montpelier Police Department is now a Child Safety Seat Inspection Station!


Vermont's Child Passenger Safety Program, "Be Seat Smart," is designed to draw attention to the importance of child car seats and to help caregivers understand the 4 Stages of Seat Safety for every child. Child safety seats can be confusing for caregivers, and many car seats are not properly installed. Certified safety technicians are available to help you for free at Fitting Stations throughout Vermont and at special Car Seat Check events.  

We offer a free and convenient way to have your child's safety seat inspected by a nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. At an inspection or installation appointment, parents and caregivers receive personal instructions on the proper selection, harnessing, installation, and use of their car seats. Please ask about the Low-Income Seat Program at your appointment.

To schedule an appointment for an inspection or installation at MPD, please email


Please keep an eye out for future child passenger safety events.
