Child Safety Seat Inspections
The Alexandria Sheriff’s Office provides child safety seat inspections for City residents. This free service is available by appointment only. Those in need of services should call 703.746.4114 during regular business hours. A deputy trained in child safety seat inspection and installation will follow-up to schedule an appointment.
- The Sheriff’s Office will only inspect and install those child safety seats that meet standards set in Code of Virginia 46.2-1095.
- Only City residents may request seat inspections. Please bring proof of residency to your appointment.
- On occasion, the Office will conduct safety seat checks in the community. When those events are scheduled, the dates and locations will be posted on this page and on the City's event calendar.
Please note that in emergency situations, the Sheriff’s Office may need to cancel or reschedule child safety seat appointments.
