Police Department Encourages Safe Graduation Celebrations
The end of the school year brings many celebrations. Unfortunately, celebrating can also lead to an increase in underage drinking. The City Of Carlsbad Police Department warns that alcohol is the leading factor in cause of death among youths and reports an increase in underage drinking incidents during the graduation season.
“Let us all work together to prevent these joyous occasions from being marred by alcohol related tragedies,” encourages Chief of Police Gary Morrison.
The Police Department would also like to remind adults that providing teens with alcohol or hosting underage drinking parties is against the law. Adults who ignore these responsibilities can face mandatory fines under the Social Host Ordinance
Morrison adds, “One bad decision can cause a lifetime of consequences. Please make safe, alcohol-free choices this graduation season.”Click for Article Link.
