Trumbull cops: Don't Mix Alcohol and Prom

Trumbull Hamlet Hub, March 29, 2015

"The following comes from the Trumbull Police Department and local volunteers for the Trumbull Partnership Against Underage Drinking & Drugs (TPAUD).

With spring finally upon us, we want to take the time to talk about safe driving and underage drinking. At the end of each school year, more high school students get their driver’s license and begin to drive to school and to after-school activities. The Trumbull Police Department provides two officers in the morning and afternoon each school day to assist with traffic on Daniels Farm Road at Strobel Road and at the entrance to Hillcrest Middle School. Students, parents, faculty, buses and residents utilize this area to a great extent before and at the end of each school day.

Prom and graduation season is also upon us, and we all need to do our part to insure that our youth have memorable and safe celebrations. One way we can all work towards providing a safe environment for our children is to ensure that alcohol is not a part of these events. If you are hosting a post-prom or graduation party, take steps to ensure that no one under 21 is served alcohol or brings alcohol into your home." Read More.
