The Apache Junction Police Department (AJPD) Car Seat Loaner Program just got a little bit better. In 2018, the program became so popular that police department personnel were dedicating 15 to 20 hours per week in taking reservations, loaning out, and tracking car seats. In order to keep the program alive, but reduce the expenditure of time and resources, we have partnered with various churches and non-profit organizations throughout the City of Apache Junction. AJPD will still loan out car seats from the police station but now there are five other organizations that you can contact to borrow one of our child passenger restraint systems.

  • Apache Junction Police Department (480) 474-5140
  • St. George Catholic Church (480) 982-2929
  • Salvation Army (480) 982-4110
  • New Season Christian Fellowship (480) 262-0872
  • Apache Junction First Assembly of God (480) 983-1200
  • Romans12 Church of Apache Junction (480) 772-6103

This is a very valuable child safety program. The safety of our children is of the utmost importance and are so grateful to these organizations that have stepped up to help keep this program going strong. We are still looking for additional partners in this endeavor. As we do not have an unlimited amount of car seats we will be screening participants. If you have or are part of a non-profit organization and would like to participate in this program, please call Corporal Marshall Harshman at (480) 474-5442.
