California Association of Highway Patrolmen
California Association of Highway Patrolmen (Founding Organization): The idea for Impact Teen Drivers was conceived by Jon Hamm, CEO for the California Association Highway Patrol, in response to the high frequency of crashes involving teens to which California Highway Patrol officers respond. CHP officers consistently report the worst part of their job is coming onto a scene where a young person has needlessly lost his or her life and subsequently informing their parents and family that they will never again see their child alive.
The CAHP was motivated to join with California Casualty and the California Teachers Association to create a powerful intervention designed to alter these grim statistics. In addition, the CAHP runs charitable trust funds and participates in fundraising to provide CHP officers and their families in times of crisis or need.
