List of Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute manages a network of Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations, previously referred to as Permanent Fitting Stations.  Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations are places where parents and caregivers can make an appointment to have their child safety seat inspected by a certified child passenger safety technician.  The certified child passenger safety technician will evaluate the way that the child is currently traveling, check the child’s current restraint for recalls, proper fit and proper installation.  The parent or caregiver is instructed on how to properly use and install the child restraint.

This is a free service and we encourage all parents and caregivers to schedule an appointment to visit one of approximately 103 Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations located across Indiana.

The Inspection Stations are listed by county below.

PLEASE NOTE THAT AT THIS TIME, MANY CAR SEAT INSPECTION STATIONS ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO THE PUBLIC BASED ON INSTITUTIONAL RULES TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19.
