C.A.T.S. Program Overview

Once a traffic offender is deemed eligible to enroll in the C.A.T.S. Program, the traffic offender has the option to enroll in the LIVE program or the ONLINE program. The requirements for each program are similar but each program was tailored to meet the needs of any individual who receives a traffic citation in Henderson County, Kentucky. Each program is discussed below, however both program options have three common requirements.

  1. Traffic Safety Course
  2. Volunteering
  3. Safe Driving

 

Live Program

Deputy Harmon will discuss traffic safety by use of pictures, videos, discussions, and statistics. The latter half of the class will include a number of traffic offenders being placed in a driving simulator (i.e. state-of-the-art software with a driving seat, steering wheel and pedals). Additionally, traffic offenders will be selected to demonstrate the effects of drugs and alcohol using our impaired vision goggles. See FAQs for detailed information and pictures of the driving simulator.
