The purpose of the California Highway Patrol’s social media pages is to share news and information regarding the activities, policies and programs of the Department and its employees. We encourage discussion and comments on posts. Your insights are important. If you have an emergency, immediately call 9-1-1. Please do not use social media to report criminal activity or an emergency incident. The opinions expressed by visitors to this page do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the CHP.
- Contain personal attacks against any member of the public or an employee of the Department. - Promote or advertise services or products. - Contain abusive, profane, or vulgar language. - Contain sexual content, overly graphic, disturbing, obscene or offensive material, or material that would otherwise violate the law if published on this site. - Hate speech targeting one of more of the following actual or perceived characteristics of an individual or group: disability, gender, nationality, race or ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. Employees of the CHP will not edit public comments to remove objectionable or inappropriate content, so please ensure that comments comply with this policy if you would like it to remain posted. The CHP recognizes that social media tools are available 24 hours a day, and we welcome comments at any time. However, given the need to manage resources, the moderation and posting of comments will occur during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Pacific Standard Time, or when possible. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends or holidays will be read and posted as soon as possible if they meet the aforementioned criteria; in most cases, this will mean the next business day.
Note: The CHP or any of its members will not ask for your personal information via any social networking site either through the official California Highway Patrol’s social media pages, nor any social media page maintained by any other unit or person employed by the CHP, for any official use by the Department.
Please note that communications made through social media channels will not constitute legal or official notice or comment to the CHP or any official or employee of the CHP for any purpose. While it was necessary for the CHP to impose these restrictions, it doesn't mean that we don't want to hear from members of the public. The CHP encourages feedback - both positive and negative - and we want to hear your ideas and opinions. You can contact the CHP by visiting http://www.chp.ca.gov.
