Since its inception in 2022, our Child Passenger Safety program has sought to educate parents and caregivers on the proper installation and use of child car seats. Certified child passenger safety educators, including Richmond RCMP officers and community volunteers, offer personalized car seat audits. These assessments ensure that car seats meet Canadian standards, are not expired, and are correctly installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications, considering the child’s age, weight, and height.

The clinic provides a unique opportunity for parents and caregivers to receive hands-on assistance and valuable insights on car seat installation, ensuring their children’s safety on the road. Each audit session lasts approximately 30-45 minutes, focusing on educating caregivers rather than installing the car seats for them.

Due to limited space and the popularity of the clinic, interested participants are urged to pre-register by calling 604-207-4761 Monday through Friday, from 9 AM to 5 PM. Early registration is highly recommended to secure a spot at this very popular safety event.

This initiative is part of Richmond RCMP’s ongoing efforts to enhance community safety and wellbeing. Supported by ICBC, the program also extends to delivering presentations to community groups, including daycares, furthering our reach and impact within the community.
Join us in making safety a priority for our youngest passengers. Reserve your spot today and gain peace of mind knowing your child’s car seat is appropriate, legal, correctly installed, and is being used properly.
