Burnsville Police Department
Give Your Car Seat a Checkup
Children in car seatsDid you know that the majority of car seats are installed incorrectly? 

Did you also know that the Burnsville Police Department holds FREE car seat checks each month?

The Burnsville Police Department has three officers who have completed required coursework and continuing education to become certified as a Child Passenger Safety Technician. During a Burnsville Police Department Car Seat Check, certified car seat technicians will demonstrate how to properly install your car seat. Parents/caregivers will walk away feeling confident in their ability to properly install the child’s car seat.

Car seat checks are held once a month and officers are not able to check seats unless an appointment is scheduled. To schedule an appointment, call Officer Alecia Ainslie at 952-641-1169, Officer Lyn Tonne at 952-641-1151 or Sgt. Shannon Siem 952-641-1328.
