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, and Officer Kirchner are certified Child Passenger Seat Technicians who inspect and install car seats here at the Police Department. These officers 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 saftey seats to distibute to anyone needing assistance. These seats have been provided to us through a grant from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, Highway Safety Division.
