A recent national study has shown that 85% of the Child Seats in use today are improperly installed, therefore placing our children in danger every time they ride in a car.
The Village of Ossining Police Department has officer trained as Child Seat Technicians certified by Safe Kids Worldwide, which is governed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Council. These officers attend an intensive 40 hour course for initial certification. To maintain their certification these officer are responsible for annual training, attendance at area child seat checkpoints and written testing.
Child Seat installations and checks are provided free of charge by the Village of Ossining Police Department on an appointment basis. Please call (914)941-4099 to make an appointment or for further information.
