The Los Angeles School Police Department's Motor Unit was formed in 2002. The unit’s main focus is to provide traffic safety for the students while traveling to and from school.
The LASPD Safe Passages Motorcycle Task Force additionally provides a Safety Valet Program for the schools. The Safety Valet Program involves committed volunteer parents and school administration to provide a safe way for students to exit their vehicles and enter the campuses. They provide training for all of the LAUSD personnel and volunteers within this program. They assist the school with the implementation of the program and help to provide education for the parents to learn the routine and patterns of the student drop-offs.
The LASPD Motor Unit has participated in numerous press conferences raising the level of awareness on the importance of teenage drivers, texting while driving, DUI, prom night celebrations, railroad safety crossings and seatbelt enforcement. These campaigns consistently targeted the safety of LAUSD students and their parents.
