Child Safety Seats

In the United States, car crashes are the number one killer of children ages 3 to 14. Additionally, four out of every five child seats are installed incorrectly by parents and caregivers.

Keeping children safe is an important priority for the Wake Forest Police Department. That's why the department is taking aggressive action to reduce the incidence of car seat and safety belt misuse by establishing a free child seat inspection and education program in Wake Forest through www.Buckleupnc.org. The free program includes a permanent inspection station at the Wake Forest Police Department, 225 S. Taylor St., with regular hours of service and annual community outreach events.

At the inspection station, a nationally certified technician will assist and educate parents and caregivers on the right way to buckle-up children on every ride.

All child seat inspection and education program activities are by appointment only. For more information or to make an appointment, contact Sgt. J. Jefferson at 919-554-6150.
