The Camarillo Police Department will be hosting a program to educate newly licensed and future
drivers. This program will take place on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 from 5:30PM until
8:30PM at the Camarillo Police Station Community Room. The “Start Smart” Program is a
cooperative effort between the California Highway Patrol, Camarillo Police Department, teenage
drivers, and their parents/guardians.
In an attempt to remain proactive and not reactive, Start Smart is designed to help young drivers
and their parents/guardians understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor
vehicle. Start Smart will show how a poor choice behind the wheel can change the lives of
everyone involved. Our goal is to raise awareness and reduce the number of teen-related
injuries and deaths due to traffic collisions.
For reservations, call the Camarillo Police Department Community Resource Unit at (805)
388-5155. Space is limited to 20 students and their parents/guardians. There is no charge
to attend the program. Interested parents are asked to contact Deputy Chris Johnston at (805)
388-5121 for more information.
