Keeping Children Safe
To ensure the safe transportation of children in motor vehicles, the Baytown Police Department has a trained group of Child Safety Seat Technicians. These technicians will assist members of the community with the proper installation of child safety seats. Every day in America, around 900 children are injured and seven are killed in car crashes. Half of those would be alive today if they had been properly protected and secured in a child safety seat inside the vehicle. National surveys have shown as many as 80% of safety seats are installed improperly. Locally, we estimate as many as 95% are improperly installed.
The Baytown Police Department has taken aggressive steps to protect children by not only actively enforcing child restraint laws, but also training individuals in the area on proper installation of child safety seats.
Our child safety seat technicians have passed a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration certification course, and each are very willing to help ensure your child seat is properly installed.
