CHP Home page

Help operating the CHP Web Site

Welcome to the California Highway Patrol Website.

The Home Page is about functionality. Across the top you see tabs with links to internal pages.

These navigation tabs stay with you as you browse the entire site.

The bar on the LEFT side generally is the navigation for a section of the website. In the Community page, for example, the left-side navigation consists of all the pages within the Community Outreach section of our website.

At the top of the left bar is the blue "California Highway Patrol Home Page" button, which returns you to the Home Page from anywhere in the site.

At the bottom of the left bar is an image that will take you to Home Page of that section.

The Home page has a bar on the RIGHT, displaying our current Alert Level and Quick Contact information for the California Highway Patrol. Remember - if it's an emergency, call 911. For non-emergency contact, call 1-800-TELL-CHP (1-800-835-5247).
