Car Seat Safety Inspections

The state of Illinois requires that all passengers, regardless of age or location in the vehicle, must be secured in a seat belt or an approved child restraint system.

Wheaton residents may register for Car Seat Safety Checks with either the Wheaton Police or Fire Departments. Certified safety personnel can assist residents with the proper installation of car seats to ensure they are used safely. Safety checks are by appointment only.


For an appointment or more information, please contact either (please have the brand and model number of the car seat):

  • Wheaton Fire Department at 630-260-2175, and follow the prompts to schedule a check
  • Wheaton Police Department at 630-260-2161, daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
