Are you and your child passengers properly restrained while driving? Child safety seats reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers (1-4 years old). 7 out of 10 kids in child safety seats are not properly buckled in. Even a sudden stop can seriously injure a child who is not riding securely in the right type of child safety seat.

The Groton Police Department currently has three certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) technicians who have been certified through The National Standardized Child Passenger Safety Technician Course.
Please contact the Groton Police Department at (978) 448-5555 if you have any questions or would like to have a child safety seat checked or installed.
