Thousand Oaks Police Department


The City of Thousand Oaks and the Thousand Oaks Police Department have a mutual interest with the community in ensuring that children reach their scholastic and personal growth potential. In today's society, children have several obstacles, bad influences, and distractions.   Raising children is not easy.  Children sometimes engage in harmful behaviors fueled by negative influences including alcohol, gangs, and peer pressure.


In furtherance of our commitment to the community, the Thousand Oaks Police Department will be offering an English and Spanish parenting class on Tuesday evenings for ten weeks starting on January 7, 2014.  Parents with difficult, defiant, or problematic children are encouraged to attend; however, all parents of middle and high school students will also benefit from this course.  Our goal is to give parents guidance and to develop more successful children.  We are excited to offer these sessions and truly wish to support parents and offer strategies to deal with difficult children.


The course content consists of ways to address drugs, sex, gangs, poor grades, runaways and violence.   Additional content includes guidance in gaining children's compliance of house rules, how to never argue with your child again, and how to use other parents for support.  Additional information can be reviewed at  Interested parents are asked to call (805) 371-8362 for English or (805) 449-2760 for Spanish.  Please reserve your spot early due to limited seating.
