MEDIA ADVISORY: Spring Alcohol Awareness Event for High School Students

Prom and graduation season are quickly approaching, and we want to remind teens about the importance of being responsible at celebrations. We are partnering with Fairfax County Public Schools by hosting our Spring Drug and Alcohol Awareness Program.

Juniors and seniors at Langley High School will be given the opportunity to wear physical impairment goggles while being tested on both simple and complex tasks, such as driving a wheelchair through a cone course or going through a mock sobriety check with our officers. Students will also learn about Virginia’s underage drinking laws and the consequences for breaking them, as well as the physical and mental dangers that often come with underage drinking.

Members of the media are invited to attend this event tomorrow, March 20, from 9:00AM-12:00PM at Langley High School, 6520 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA.
