Nationally, child seat restraint misuse has been reported to be in excess of 90%. This is primarily due to the numerous amount of child restraint manufacturers, abundance of car types and models, and a wide range of seat belt restraint systems.
The Bloomingdale Police Department offers checks of child restraint seats to Bloomingdale residents. There is no charge for this service.
Safety Check Appointments
Technicians are available by appointment only. Please call the Bloomingdale Police Department's non-emergency number at 630-529-9868 to set up an appointment. The child seat check normally takes less than an hour per seat.
Prior to the appointment, it is requested that the parent/caregiver familiarize themselves with the child seat and make an attempt to install it.
Parents and caregivers are asked to bring the owner's manuals for both their vehicle and child restraint seat. Although not mandatory, parents and caregivers are also asked to bring the child using the seat to ensure proper fit.
Child restraints can also be installed for expectant families. Please remember to buckle up - every one - every time!
