Three deputies completed a week of training to become certified safety seat technicians and joined a fourth who was already certified. The team began offering inspection and installation services for City residents in July 2013.
Deputies install the large majority of seats through appointments at the Public Safety Center but also take part in community events in Alexandria and in other parts of Northern Virginia in partnership with local child welfare and law enforcement agencies. The Sheriff’s Office also works closely with the Virginia Department of Health to distribute helpful materials about child passenger safety and to document seat installations.
City residents may schedule an appointment for this free service by calling 703.746.4114 during regular business hours. Visit the Sheriff's Office
Child Safety Seat page for more information about the program. For more information about child passenger safety including recalls and Virginia law, visit
this Health Department site.
