Camarillo – Start Smart Program

Nature of Incident: Start Smart Program

Location: Camarillo Police Station Community Room

3701 Las Posas Road, Camarillo, CA 93010

Date & Time: Wednesday, January 30th, 2019, 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Unit(s) Responsible: Camarillo Police Department Traffic Bureau


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

drivers. This program will take place on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 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.

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. Interested parents are asked to contact Deputy Chris Johnston at (805)

388-5121 for more information.
