Child Passenger Safety (CPS)

Manual and Forms

The Bureau of Highway Safety is continually working to improve its Child Passenger Safety Program by developing consistent guidelines and procedures that address program quality, effectiveness, efficiency, and communication, and to better address the needs of the residents of the State of Maine. 


The Child Passenger Safety program manual is a guide for CPS Technicians and Partners.  This manual should be considered a growing and changing document that will be updated annually to improve program processes.  Information contained within this guide is subject to change and may not be all inclusive of program policies.
