Westchester County Prom & Graduation Safety

Prom and Graduation season is a time for happy and memorable memories for students.  To help ensure that this time is safe for all students, the Westchester County Office of Drug Abuse Prevention & STOP-DWI along with the Westchester Coalition for Drug & Alcohol Free Youth continue to have a multi-media approach (including print, outdoor media, website, local television and social media) for parents to increase parental knowledge, and raise their perception of risk or harm of youth alcohol, marijuana and prescription drug use and encourage them to communicate these risks to their teens and set clear no-use boundaries.  In addition, letters are sent to all high school principals asking them to assist us in this effort so we can partner to keep our young people safe on what should be a memorable and happy occasion.  Included in the letters are prom brochures, tips re hiring limousines, announcement of public safety efforts as well as general safety tips.
