The Child Passenger Safety Seat Program is a service provided by the police department to educate and assist town residents with correctly installing child passenger safety seats in vehicles. Utilizing best practices, SFPD officer technicians certified in child passenger safety seat installations provide this service to residents free of charge in order to ensure children are safely secured in car seats. Though it is issued on a limited basis, the police department’s program technicians can distribute a car seat to a family in need without cost through a grant program that is part of the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee and Highway Safety Grant Program.
The police department currently has five certified child passenger safety technicians that are able to assist residents with car seat installations and are available by appointment only.
To schedule an appointment with a technician, please contact the Seneca Falls Police Department at 315-568-4850 during normal business days between 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.
