Car Seat Frequently Asked Questions



Where can I get an inexpensive car seat?


Children Are Priceless Passengers (CAPP)


CAPP is a child passenger safety program offered to offenders and non-offenders of Arizona state child passenger safety laws. For the fee of $25.00, parents/caregivers will receive two hours of car seat information and one-on-one coaching on proper use of car seats.


Car seat resources are reserved for the most-needy cases. Each location has its own class time and location. You must call to pre-register.
