Child Safety Seat Inspections
Your Police Department has officers certified to conduct child safety seat inspections for residents. Their training allows them to quickly identify potential defects or vehicle and equipment installation problems. Such inspections have revealed that only a small percentage of those child safety seats we have looked at were installed properly.
If you are a resident of Frontenac, Crystal Lake Park, Huntleigh, or Westwood, and would like to arrange for an appointment for such inspections at either your home or the Police Station, please contact Sergeant Brian Wolf or Officer Nicole Farris via our Radio Dispatch at 314-737-4600. These veteran officers will also demonstrate the correct methods to install child safety seats and to place your child into them to provide for maximum protection.
*** New Child Safety Seat Law ***
A new Missouri law, effective August 28,2006, says your child must be in a booster seat if they are ages 4-7 years old, unless they are 80 pounds or 4'9" tall.
