Installing Car Seats: You Can Do This!

The Newington Police Department now sponsors car seat checks and installations. These checks are intended to inspect parents’ efforts to install car seats and to show them how to correct any installation problems that may be occurring. Appointments are needed to have car seats checked and may be scheduled by calling 860-666-8445. Currently Officer Meghan Kennedy and Officer Jamie DeSimone have been certified to conduct proper child seat installation checks.
