Child Vehicle Restraint Systems (AKA Child Car Seats) are designed to protect your child in the event of a car accident. Unfortunately, if your child's car seat is not installed correctly it could be completely ineffective in an accident resulting in unnecessary death or injury. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, as many as 50-80% of car seats in use today are improperly installed.
The Wood Dale Police Department has specialty trained individuals who are certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to properly install a child safety car seat. We can assist you in properly installing a child restraint system.
Appointments can be made by contacting the police department at (630) 766-2060 and speaking to a Community Service Officer.
