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/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 a driving 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.


Interested parents are asked to contact 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/guardians.  There is no charge to attend the program.
