City of Residence






The City of Camarillo, Camarillo Police Department, parents and the community all share the common desire to ensure children reach their scholastic and personal growth potential. In today's society, children have many obstacles, negative influences, and distractions which can keep them from their goals.  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 Camarillo Police Department will be offering a parenting course on Wednesday evenings for ten weeks starting on May 28, 2014. Parents with difficult, defiant, or troubled children are encouraged to attend; however, all parents of middle and high school students will benefit from this course. Our goal is to give parents guidance and tools to assist them in developing successful children.


The course content addresses topics such as drugs, sex, gangs, poor grades, runaways and violence. Additional content includes guidance in gaining children's compliance of house rules, how to avoid arguing with your child, and how to use other parents for support. Additional information can be reviewed at


Classes will be presented on Wednesday evenings at the Camarillo Police Department,

 3701 E. Las Posas Road, Camarillo.  Space is limited for the course.  Interested parents are asked to make reservations early by contacting Senior Deputy Bea Hughes at (805) 388-5131 or (805) 388-5155.
