Child Safety Seat Inspections

The Midlothian Police Department has Certified Child Safety Seat Technicians on staff.  Due to the nature of our work, car seats are inspected by appointment only and must be installed by the individual prior to arriving for an appointment.  Before your appointment, reference your specific Vehicle Owners Manual and specific Child Safety Seat Instruction Manual and/or manufacturer's website for guidance on installation.  Please note that the child safety seat should be installed prior to the inspection.  Our technicians will inspect your car seat installation and help make adjustments if necessary.  The technicians will require your full attention and willingness to learn, as this is an educational service and not an installation service.  The technicians simply inspect the installation and provide education on proper installment of the seat.  Currently, this service is available to Midlothian residents only, so please be prepared to show proof of residency.  

For additional information or questions, please email Lieutenant Mike Amrein at or call (708) 385-2534.  Expect each appointment to last approximately 30 minutes (per seat).

Plan Ahead

If you are expecting a child in the near future, please plan ahead and schedule a child safety seat appointment well in advance of your due date.
