The DeKalb Police Department
started the Child Passenger Safety Seat
program in the summer of 2001.
The Department has several officers who are nationally
certified Child Passenger Safety Seat
Technician and are available to assist
citizens in answering any questions they may
have, as well as making sure:
child passenger seat is installed
has not been recalled;
meets safety standards;
And, it is correct for your child.
In order to be certified,
officers must attend a 32-hour class given
by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration) certified
instructors. The training covered
topics such as injury prevention, crash
dynamics, federal safety standards, vehicle
occupant protection systems, and the correct
installation of child restraint systems.
