The Traffic Bureau currently has two officers certified as Child Safety Seat Technicians. These officers have voluntarily undertaken extensive training and maintain their certification through constant continuing education. In order to expedite our inspection or your child's seat, we ask that you prepare ahead of your visit to us. Inspections are conducted by appointment only.
- Your seat should be new or purchased within the past 5 years. Seats typically purchased at garage sales or handed down may have hidden defects.
- Visit the National Highway Safety Administration website to see if your car seat has been recalled.
- Residents are asked to have the car seat they would like to have checked, already installed in the vehicle according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Once this is done, schedule an appointment online or contact the Traffic Bureau at 973-835-1700 ext. 156 to make an appointment with one of the techs. Your child should accompany you to this appointment to ensure proper fit.
Due to heavy demand, this service is available to Pequannock Township residents only.
Please note that due to rotating schedules of Child Safety Seat Technicians, inclement weather and COVID-19; availability may be limited. Please plan as far ahead as possible.
You can also contact the Police Desk at 973-835-1703 to request a call-back about a car seat installation appointment.
