Child Restraint Technician

child seatThe Village of Elmwood Park would like to welcome parents and caregivers for a “check-up” of their child’s restraint seat. Technicians will educate and assist you in your installation of the child restraint. The event will be held in the Circle on Friday, June 19, 2015 from 2:00pm to 7:00pm, prior to the start of the Circle Auto Show. Please fill out the form below to make your child restraint seat is in proper condition and working order.

Inspections are by appointment only. Registration forms must be submitted no later than June 8, 2015. You will be notified by email of the time of your appointment within 5-7 days of submission of your request. You must confirm your scheduled appointment by email within 72 hours. Please check your email as well as your spam folder.

A “check-up” can range between one half-hour to forty-five minutes. Parents and caregivers are asked to bring their owner’s manual for both their vehicle and child restraint seat and a pool noodle or towel to the “check-up”. Child restraints can also be installed for expectant families and newly purchased seats. Please bring a current driver’s license or state identification with you.

Several technicians from the Elmwood Park Police will be on hand and will check your child restraint to make sure:

  • Your seat is installed correctly
  • Your seat has not been recalled
  • Your seat meets safety standards
  • Your seat is correct for your child
