The Child Safety Seat Checkpoints are completely free of charge service offered by the KPD for parents, grandparents or other guardians. During the checkpoint, child car seats are inspected by a certified car seat technician to ensure proper use and installation. Additionally, car seat technicians provide valuable safety tips and recommendations for those utilizing child safety seats.

The checkpoints are led by KPD personnel who have completed the 32-hour Child Passenger Safety Technician Standardized Training.
