The Cornell University Police have a Child Safety Seat Program. The Program is funded through grant money that allows the Cornell Police to purchase a limited number of child safety seats and make them available to families in the Cornell community, pending application approval. Families who qualify under the New York State WIC Income Eligibility Guidelines or under any New York State Public Assistance Program may be eligible to receive a free child safety seat. All inquiries and applications are confidential. [PDF application]
Child Safety Seat inspections and installations are by appointment only. You can make an appointment by calling (607) 255-7305. In addition, there are two biannual Child Safety Seat Checks held where anyone from the campus community can attend. If the Child Passenger Safety Technician inspecting the safety seat discovers the seat is on the federal recall list, has been involved in an accident, or determines for some reason the seat should not be used, the family attending the event may receive a free child safety seat.
