LAWTON, OK (TNN) - The Lawton Police Department held a Prom safety awareness event Thursday.
Students at MacArthur High School heard from officers Thursday about how to stay safe on the big night.
Some of the topics covered today included drinking and driving, never leaving a drink unattended and keeping an eye on friends.
“It’s very important to us because that’s the last thing we want—a fatality accident or some kid that gets into trouble at the prom. So for us, the Lawton Police Department, coming out teaching this some of this. By us coming out here hopefully it will deter them from doing some of that and they’ll tell their friends lets not do that as well,” said Sgt. Timothy Jenkins.
LPD will be talking to all the high schools in the Lawton community, Mac was just the first stop.
