Car Seat Program

Nothing is more important than keeping children safe, so the Brockton Police Department has operated a car seat inspection and installation program for over 18 years, inspecting and installing hundreds of seats. Currently, 4 sworn Brockton Police Officers speaking English, Spanish, Cape Verdean Creole, and Haitian Creole are certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians who hold weekly appointments to inspect and/or install car seats while educating parents and caregivers about proper safety seat installation and usage.

Additionally, the officers conduct car seat inspections at events throughout the city, hold child passenger safety education classes for transporters and caregivers, and work with social service agencies to ensure infants and young children have a proper car seat.

Appointments are held at the Brockton Police Department at 7 Commercial Street on Wednesday evenings between 4pm and 7pm, and interested citizens should call 508-897-5208 to schedule a time to have their car seat checked or installed.
