Torrance Police Department Traffic Safety Information: The Torrance Police Department cares about your safety.With traffic congestion becoming a concern of schools nationwide, particularly as parents pick up and drop off their children, our goal is to make this process flow in a safe and smooth manner. We can do it with your help— please obey all traffic laws and parking restrictions!
To further improve the situation, beginning in the 2006/2007 school year, TBD started using video cameras to tape violations occurring around our schools. These cameras will continue to be used to tape violations for the 2014/2015 school year. Parking citations will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. You don't want to become a star on camera...instead, help out by NOT picking up or dropping off in the areas depicted on the THIS FLYER.
