Los Angeles police certified as child safety seat technicians will be available by appointment at the Valley Traffic Division on Thursdays to help parents properly install the car seats, which are required for children younger than 8 years old.

Officers will be able to handle about four appointments per hour between 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., police said.

Babies must be placed in the back seat in rear-facing safety seats until they reach at least 20 pounds. Booster seats are recommended for children who are  8 years old or older, but less than 4-feet-9-inches tall.

The Valley Traffic Division is at 7870 Nollan Place in Panorama City. Appointments can be made by calling (818) 644-8143.
