Lincoln Police Department and Lancaster County Sheriff's Office to Present at Forum
On Monday, April 26, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. the Lincoln Southeast Prevention Coalition and the Lincoln Council on Alcohol and Drugs will sponsor a parent forum with presentations by Lincoln Police Department's Officer Brian Ward and Lancaster County Sheriff's Deputy Nick Heitman. The event, held at Lincoln Southeast High School, will focus on prescription drug abuse as well as impaired and distracted driving by teens in Nebraska. The forum is scheduled in conjunction with prom week to bring attention to safe driving and to encourage students to "Arrive Alive". A wrecked vehicle will be parked outside Southeast High School, along Van Dorn Street, with a banner reading "Arrive Alive". The public is encouraged to attend the forum to discuss this important issue for our youth. The goal is to create a positive community response to support prom attendees celebrating drug and alcohol free.
