Nature of Incident: Start Smart Program

Narrative:
The Camarillo Police Department will be hosting a program to educate newly licensed and future drivers.  This program will take place on Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 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.
 
We understand that some Judges are requiring this type of course to satisfy prior traffic cases.  Active participation is a requirement and all who chose not to participate will not get credit for the course.
 
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.
