Oct 16 - What Your Teen Driver Needs to Know to Survive Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers, ahead of all other types of injury, disease, or violence. To shed light on this epidemic and reduce the number of lives lost, the Sacramento Police Department wants to draw public attention to National Teen Driver Safety Week, October 15-21. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nationwide in 2015, 1,972 drivers, age 15-18, were involved in fatal collisions. In 2015, in California, 283 teens were behind the wheel at the time of fatal collisions, and 63 percent of those young drivers were at fault. Teen Driver Safety Week will help parents focus attention on setting rules for their teen driver before allowing them to get behind the wheel. Parents and guardians must set firm driving rules to impact their teen’s driving behavior. They can be the difference between life and death. Inexperience is one of the leading causes of teen collisions. The most important thing a parent can do for a new teen driver is to stay involved in their driving life. Take frequent drives with your newly licensed teens to monitor their progress. Parents can reduce the dangerous and sometimes deadly behaviors, such as alcohol consumption, driving without seat belts, speeding, carrying extra passengers, and driving distracted. “Cell phone use continues to be a serious and often deadly distraction for all drivers, but it’s a significant problem among young, inexperienced drivers,” said Rhonda Craft, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety. “If you’re a parent, guardian, or mentor to a teen driver, lead by example and encourage them to put the phone down and focus on the road. No text message or social media post is more valuable than their lives or the lives of others around them.” As part of its commitment to educating the motoring public, there are programs for teen drivers and their families: •Start Smart conducted by law enforcement personnel is a driver safety education class that targets new and future licensed drivers between the ages of 15-19 and their parents/guardians. •The CHP has released a mobile application (app) for Start Smart, designed to assist young people through the process of obtaining their California driver license. The app includes a step-by-step guide covering everything from the Department of Motor Vehicles Driver Handbook and the final steps for obtaining a provisional license, to ultimately achieving an unrestricted California driver license. •Every 15 Minutes focuses on high school juniors and seniors, challenging them to think about drinking, driving, personal safety, the responsibility of making mature decisions, and the impact their decisions have on family, friends, and many others. •Impact Teen Drivers, a non-profit organization parented with CHP is dedicated to saving lives through evidence-based educational programs that support good decision-making strategies behind the wheel. •California Friday Night Live Partnership, working with high schools and middle schools to educate teens about traffic safety and impaired driving awareness including Town Hall meetings, prom related campaigns, and parent awareness programming. •The Power to Youth and the Power of Parents, MADD’s multi-sensory high school assembly education program highlighting the dangers of teen impaired driver. •Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), educating and bring awareness to California communities of the human toll caused by alcohol related crashes to high school and middle school programs. The Sacramento Police Department is aware of the importance of role models in a youth’s development. Parents and other setting the example and education of new drivers and their families is regarded as a critical function to help keep everyone safe while driving. The Sacramento Police Departments traffic education campaign is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Read Post

Oct 15 - ‘The horse you get off is not the same as the horse you got on. It is your job as a rider to ensure that as often as possible, the change is for the better.’ -unknown author On Saturday, October 14, the Sacramento Police Department’s Mounted Unit gained a new member. Meet Babs, a five-year-old mare that was a former wild Mustang whom was afraid of humans and roamed public land. Babs was purchased by funds from Tom Naydow, a downtown Sacramento business man, who donated to the Sacramento Police Mounted Association specifically for a new horse. Babs is unique though, in that she received ALL her training from a prisoner, yet she will now go on to work with the police. Charlie, an inmate at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, is part of the R3C Wild Horse Program which was created in 2014 to help both wild horses and inmates. The program focuses on taking inmates out of the jail setting for 8 hours a day and gives them vocational training to prepare wild horses for adoption and auction. The program saves the 46,000 wild horses that are currently in long term holding facilities with the Bureau of Land Management. This program, which is the only wild horse county jail program in the nation, helps these mustangs find forever homes, yet I think the real payoff is far greater than that. The inmates who are paired with these horses receive them when they are ‘green’, with no training. The horses are scared, afraid, and have lived their lives without any rules – maybe similar to the inmates who are training them. It is the inmates job to build trust with the horses through leadership, caring for them, training them, and making them adoptable to the public. Consequently, the inmates learn valuable social and vocational skills which give them guidance after leaving the prison environment. Most inmates graduating the six-step program can find jobs training horses or as professional farriers in the equine industry. If you ask any of the inmate trainers about their horses on the day of the auction, you can hear the pride in their answers. Yet, you might also hear them choke up. You see auction day is bittersweet. After the endless hours they have spent training these horses, they have created a bond of trust and have ultimately fallen in love with their horse. Being with an animal for that amount of time, training it and having it rely on you, causes you to care and teaches patience. The horse doesn’t view the inmate as someone that has made mistakes, and the inmate does not judge the horse. Yet auction day means their horse will go on to a new home, a new life. On this auction day, Jared Kiser, the Sergeant of the Sacramento Police Department's Mounted Unit, didn’t understand why Charlie kept asking about what time he would be loading up and leaving with Babs, the new adopted police horse. And then it dawned on him - Charlie was concerned with how much more time he would have with her. Sgt. Kiser realized this and reassured Charlie he could have the time he needed to say goodbye. The day before, Charlie had even given up his allotted lunch hour to spend time with Babs, feeding her apples. When Sgt. Kiser was presented with Babs at auction, someone in the crowd yelled out and teased Charlie if he ever dreamed he would be training police horses. He laughed. His inmate-trainer friends laughed, and the crowd of Law Enforcement officers and bidders laughed too. Such an irony. Charlie was creating a new chance, a fresh start. He could easily go back to the lifestyle he had before, with no structure and guidance. Yet, Babs could too. #sacpd #realpeoplerealstories #livecleanridewild To learn more about the Sacramento Sheriff's Wild Horse Program visit: Read Post
