Child Passenger Safety Seat Installation Unit

The safety of children is always of paramount concern to parents and to us as well. One of the most likely ways that a child can receive serious injuries is when they are placed in a child seat that was improperly installed. For this reason, the department maintains a number of officers who are certified child safety seat installers.

As part of our community outreach, the Child Passenger Safety Seat Installation Unit also hosts a monthly child safety seat installation station on the first Tuesday of each month at the Plymouth Street firehouse from 9AM-12PM. This is in conjunction with the Fairfield Fire Department and Safe Kids of Northern New Jersey. From time to time, they will also host similar events at the Target store.

Anyone in need of having a child safety seat properly installed can contact the police department at (973) 227-1400 you may be asked the following:
