Did you know that the majority of car seats are installed incorrectly?
Did you also know that the Burnsville Police Department holds FREE car seat checks each month?
Car Seat Checks
During a Burnsville Police Department Car Seat Check, certified car seat technicians will demonstrate how to properly install your car seat. After taking part, parents/caregivers will walk away feeling confident in their ability to properly install the child’s car seat.
The Burnsville Police Department has three officers who have completed the required course to become certified as a Child Passenger Safety Technician. The officers must continue their education and training in order to keep their certification up to date.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Officer Alecia Ainslie at 952-641-1169, Officer Lyn Tonne at 952-641-1151 or Sgt. Shannon Siem 952-641-1328.
Please keep in mind appointments are held once a month and officers are not able to check seats unless an appointment is scheduled.
