Child Safety Seats

A Culpeper PD officer installs a child car seat

The Culpeper Police Department has several officers trained as certified child safety seat technicians and installers available to assist citizens with seat installation at the police department. In addition, the department participates in local community events providing education materials for parents as well as installation services.


The month of September has been designated as National Child Passenger Safety Month. As part of the national campaign, the Culpeper Police Department organizes safety seat inspections at local day care facilities and other appropriate locations to emphasize the correct use of seats through inspection of current usage and distribution of educational literature.


Parents and guardians are able to schedule free appointments with our car seat technicians. Depending on the needs of the parents, the technicians can either check that a car seat is already properly installed or they can help teach the parent how to install a new car seat. The seats are also checked to make sure that they are not recalled, expired, and the correct fit for the child. These appointments can be easily scheduled by contact our Department at (540) 727-3430 extension 5587 during normal business hours.
