Child Safety Seat Checkup Event

June 24, 2021


On Sunday, June 27 from 12:00PM to 4:00PM child passenger safety technicians with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office and Marshalltown Police Department will be hosting a child seat safety checkup event at Fareway located at 102 W Anson St.  This event will be co-sponsored Fareway and Child Abuse Prevention Services of Marshalltown. 

Technicians will be available to check child safety seats to make sure they properly fit the vehicle and child as well as ensuring correct and safe installation. They will also be checking seats to make sure they are not expired or recalled.   Techs will work with parents or caregivers to educate them on correct installation as well as offer tips to aid with proper installation.  They will also be able to answer general questions about child passenger safety.  This is a good opportunity to learn about different seat options and transitioning to different seats as your child grows and develops.  Informational handouts will be available for caregivers. 

There will be a limited number of free replacement seats available for seats that are expired or recalled.  The free replacement seats are provided courtesy of donations from various community partners.  Child Abuse Prevention Services will have staff present to provide information on services provided by their agency. 

The child or children must be present at the event.  The only exception would be for expecting mothers.  Please also have available the vehicle owner’s manual and child safety seat manufacturer’s manual.  This is an educational event only and there will be no enforcement action taken for improper installation or misuse. 

If you cannot make this event you can schedule an inspection by appointment by contacting 641-754-5725 or by emailing 

For questions or additional information regarding this event, contact Chief Deputy Ben Veren at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at 641-754-6380 or
