Child Safety Seat Program

The Newberry Township Police Department currently has Two (2) certified officers who conduct Child Safety Seat inspections. This program enables citizens to bring child safety seats to the Newberry Township Police Department for inspection, to be sure that seats are functioning properly and that it is the proper seat for your child’s weight, height and age. Officer Scott Tyson and Officer Dean Bortner are trained to help parents or caregivers learn how to properly install car seats, and identify child safety seats that have been recalled due to manufacturer defects or safety concerns. The Newberry Township Police Department will be conducting programs throughout the year to inspect child safety seats as a service to citizens of Newberry Township and surrounding areas. If you would like to bring your child safety seat in for inspection, please contact one of the following officers to schedule an appointment:

Officer Scott Tyson - 717-938-2608 ext. 116 

Officer Dean Bortner - 717-938-2608 ext. 108

Also, watch your local television station and our website for upcoming car seat clinics and events.
