PALM DESERT, Calif. -

The Riverside Police Department and Sam's Club will hold a free child passenger safety seat clinic on Tuesday in Riverside.

The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Sam's Club store at 6363 Valley Springs Parkway.

Certified technicians from Riverside County Injury Preventative Services and members of the Riverside Police Department will be on hand to check child restraints for proper usage and proper fit for the child.
