Car Seat Safety

Off Campus

Car seat inspections are conducted by the Amherst Police Department on an "as request" basis. Please call the Amherst Police Department at 413-259-3000 to see if a certified technician is on-duty. If you have questions, please contact Amherst Police Officer Michael Forcum at 413-259-3000.

Non-Amherst residents can have their car seat inspected by Safe Kids Coalition, a program of Bay State Children's Hospital.

Car Seat Safety, a resource provided by Massachusetts Government Office of Public Safety and Security, provides information for the selection and proper use of car seats.
