Child Passenger Safety

Thanks in part to a Permanent Checking Station grant from the NC Office of the State Fire Marshall, the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office now offers Child Safety Seat installations and inspections free of charge.  The checking station is located at 44 West Main Avenue in Taylorsville, NC (across from the Alexander County Courthouse, lower entrance)If you have any questions about the child restraint laws, proper seat installation, fitting issues or any other child safety seat related question please contact us.  Seat installations and inspections are available by appointment or by walk-up (appointment recommended to ensure technician is available).

If you would like to schedule an appointment please call 828-635-5729 and speak to Sgt. Jason Moore or Sgt. David Moose.  You may leave a message and request that a technician call you back to schedule the appointment.  If you prefer, you may email Sgt. Moore or Sgt. Moose directly to set up a time as well.  If possible, be sure that the child is present when the installation is performed so the technician can check for a proper fit with the seat.

Mobile Seat Checking Stations

Mobile seat check clinics are also available and can be set up at your organization or event at no charge.  Technicians will be on hand to perform seat checks and distribute literature regarding proper selection and use of child safety seats.  If you would like to schedule a seat check appointment or a mobile clinic you may email us or call 828-635-5729.  Please be sure to include your name, method to contact you and the best time to contact you.  A technician will follow up with you to ensure your needs are met.
