Meet the Highway Patrolmen who help keep our roads
Arrowhead (Running Springs) California Highway Patrol is committed to providing
the highest level of Safety, Service and Security to the people of California.
Recently, during the full-closure of State Route-330, beginning September
9th until September 20th, the California Highway Patrol worked
closely with Caltrans to ensure the safety of all affected communities.
California Highway Patrol officers were stationed at SR-330 and
Highland Avenue, to keep all up-bound traffic from the maintenance on the City
Creek Bridge and construction work to install the Rock Fall Barrier. Also, CHP patrolled SR-330 at Live Oak Road
to detour down-bound to State Route-18 to the Waterman route in the Crestline
area. The full-closures of 24 hours,
seven days per week, for the entire time Caltrans Maintenance worked to complete
the project that was damaged during the Valentines Day Storm, 2019.
During the SR-33o Closure, the California Highway Patrol had
extra enforcement on State Route-38, to assist with the increased traffic,
deverted from the SR-330 project.
The CHP badge
is a symbol of courage, strength, and integrity.
The California Highway
Patrol (CHP) is a law enforcement agency of California. The CHP has patrol
jurisdiction over all California highways and are also known as the state
police. They also have jurisdiction over city roads, and have the right to
conduct law enforcement procedures there.
The California Highway
Patrol motto is "Safety, Service, and
Security." The force provides those features to Californians - through
active programs, community outreach, and communication. We take a pro-active
stance against crime, trying not only to protect our public, but by showing the
public how to protect themselves. We promote safe driving for all ages, we have
programs designed to teach kids about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, and we
provide support to victims of crimes. Help us keep our roads and highways safe.
Do your part by driving safely, and reminding others of their responsibilities
on the road. Volunteer for one of our Community Outreach programs. Or be a
mentor for young adults. California's safety is everyone's responsibility.
