California Law Enforcement Challenge (CLEC)

Officer Talking To Driver

Serving With Pride & Integrity sign on police car

The California Law Enforcement Challenge (CLEC)  is a competition between similar sizes and types of law enforcement agencies. It recognizes and rewards the best overall traffic safety programs in California. The areas of concentration include efforts to enforce laws and educate the public about occupant protection, impaired driving and speeding.

Agencies submit an application which documents their efforts and effectiveness in these areas. The winning safety programs are those that combine officer training, public information and enforcement to reduce crashes and injuries within its jurisdiction.

The California Highway Patrol  has twice awarded UPD First Place for our traffic safety efforts. UPD is consistently the leader in the number of DUI arrests when compared to the other university campuses in the California State University system.
