The Camarillo Police Department will be hosting a program to educate newly licensed and future drivers.


The 'Start Smart' Program is a cooperative effort between the California Highway Patrol, Camarillo Police Department, teenage drivers, and their parents.


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 collisions.


Interested parents are asked to call Sergeant Renee Ferguson at 805-388-5132 for more information. For reservations, call the Camarillo Police Department Community Resource Unit at 805-388-5155.  Space is limited to 20 students and their parents.  There is no charge to attend the program.
