CHILD SAFETY SEAT LOANER PROGRAM
The Alburtis Police Department is proud to be a qualified loaner in the CHILD PASSENGER RESTRAINT LOAN PROGRAM (CPRLP). The CPRLP is made possible by the Child Passenger Restraint Fund, which was established in the PA Vehicle Code. The Fund consists of fines collected from child passenger safety law violations, federal grant funds, and donations, and is used solely for the purpose of purchasing Federally-approved child restraint seats and booster seats and making them available to qualified loaner programs.
On April 29, 2015, Alburtis PD received its first shipment of car seats from Evenflo Company, Inc. through PennDOT.
If you are in need of a car seat-infant, convertible, combination, high back belt positioning booster, or backless belt positioning booster-please contact Officer Chris Lubenetski.
To obtain a car seat, the receiver must watch a safety video on installation, install the car seat with assistance from Officer Lubenetski, complete the car seat registration card, and complete any other paperwork required by the program. the car seats will be available for free to those needing them-parents and grandparents-with the stipulation that they are returned to the police department when they are no longer needed.
