Car Seat Installations

Did you know that 73% of car seats are either used or installed incorrectly, and that car seats expire after 6 years? It's important to take the time to check your seat, to ensure that your child is safe. If you have any doubt, please contact us. We’d be happy to answer your questions, or assist in checking or installing your seat.

Officer Staples is a certified Child Passenger Seat Technician who inspects and install car seats here at the Police Department. He will teach you the proper way to install your car seat, and you will leave with a better sense of security and confidence in your child’s safety.

The Northampton Police Department also has a supply of free child passenger safety seats to distibute to anyone in need. These seats were provided to us through a grant from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, Highway Safety Division.

Installations and inspections are currently by appointment only and can be made via email:
