Child Safety Seat Inspection


The NIU Police Department and Public Safety’s top priority is your overall safety. This includes the safety of your children. Child seats add a layer of protection while you drive. However, you do not get the full protection until the seat is properly installed.

We have several employees who are Certified Child Safety Seat Installers. Our installers will take the time to install your seat correctly for you while they explain the proper use of the child safety seat and why correct installation is so very important. You can rest assured that your child will have the best possible protection their safety seat can offer in the event of an accident.

To arrange you appointment; please contact the NIU Police Department’s non-emergency number, 815-753-1212. Appointments are available between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. We ask you to allow at least half an hour when you meet with our Child Safety Seat Installers.
