Keep Safe This Prom Season

As prom season approaches, the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office is offering some safety tips.

Make sure you have a solid plan and stick to it. Officers say if you plan something exciting and memorable, people won’t think about leaving to drink or use drugs.

They add that you can set a positive example for others by showing them that it’s possible to have a good time without being intoxicated. And if other people do decide to drink or use drugs, be ready to say “No” or walk away.

The LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office plans to increase patrols during prom events. South Central’s prom is scheduled for this Saturday, while LaCrosse will hold theirs next week.
