Talk to Your Kids about What to Expect on Graduation Night
There is a lot to celebrate - achievements, the future, life!
Graduating seniors tend to feel invincible and may try something they wouldn't normally do. So, before the parties start, talk with your children about alcohol and drug use, attending parties and not driving if they are in any way impaired.
The Santa Clara Police Department wants to eliminate accidents, misfortune and death. To support this effort, patrol officers will be conducting drunk and drugged driving patrols to enhance safety and reduce the number of impaired and intoxicated drivers on our roads.
If you observe underage drinking or a drunk driver, report it by calling 9-1-1 or (408)615-5580 in a non-emergency. Everyone’s celebrations and achievements should be remembered as good times for years to come. You may be saving a life!
