Our children are our future. The California Highway Patrol is aware of how much role models play in a child’s development, so we’ve developed several programs for kids of any age. Help us by alerting them to the dangers they face as they grow up – from dealing with alcohol and drugs, to street racing, to handling peer pressure. You can steer them in the right direction, and we can help. Check out the programs below, and let’s work together to keep our kids safe.
