[KHTS] – Officer Eric Priessman of the Newhall office of the California Highway Patrol generally begins his shift with coffee and a 5 a.m. briefing.
After discussing concerns, such as traffic hazards, road conditions, Amber Alerts or any other information Priessman and his fellow officers might need to know, they hit the roads.
The Santa Clarita Valley office – which is in Castaic, but dubbed Newhall because that’s where it used to be – covers a fairly wide berth.
Their area of responsibility reaches from Interstate 5, north of the 405-5 interchange through Gorman; on Highway 14, from its southernmost point to Ward Road, near Red Rover Mine; heading west on Highway 126 until the Ventura County line; and on the 210 Freeway until it hits the 118 Freeway.
