Press releases are posted on as a free community service.


The Santa Barbara California Highway Patrol invites you to support our annual “CHiPs for Kids” toy drive.  The public is encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to any central coast CHP office, or any of the participating locations listed below, between December 1st and December 19Th.

With the holiday season upon us, the CHP wants to do their part to ensure all children in our community have a 2022 to remember.  The toys that are donated will be delivered to local families in need.  “We hope to help as many families as possible,” said Public Information Officer Jonathan Gutierrez, “We take pride in serving the Santa Barbara community, not only by protecting the roadways, but helping those in need.”
