Car Seat Installations

Office Car Seat InstallationProgram

It is extremely important that you make sure all children riding in your car are properly secured. Nationwide, many children are injured or killed every year because of improper installation of child safety seats. Because of this, the Daly City Police Department contracts with a private company that has a child passenger safety technician who provides child safety seat education and installation once a month at the front parking lot of City Hall.

Appointments are the first Saturday of the month, and there are six time slots available. There is no cost to you. To make an appointment, please call 650-991-8119 to schedule an appointment.


Because of the Shelter-at Home order, this free service is discontinued until further notice.
