Child Seat Inspection
Michigan Law requires:
- Children from birth until age 8 be properly restrained in a child safety seat or booster seat in the vehicle, unless they are over 4’9” tall.
- Children who are eight years old but less than sixteen years old must use a safety belt no matter where they are riding in the vehicle.
It is a well-known fact that up to 85% of all child safety seats are installed incorrectly. Knowing this, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office has several of our deputies trained and certified through the State of Michigan Department of Community Health to address this need.
The Macomb County Sheriff Office provides free child seat safety checks and installations, between 7am – 10pm by appointment only.
Participants are asked to bring the following items to the inspection:
- Vehicles owner’s manual
- Car Seat owner’s manual
- If possible, the child that will be “properly secured” in the safety seat.
Please allow 30 minutes for the installation and safety check process.
Please contact Sgt. Michael Shorkey at (586) 307-9540 to schedule an appointment.
