Police across the region will be cracking down over the coming graduation weekend for Chancellor High and several others in our region.
Drinking under 21 is illegal and binge drinking can be deadly. Make sure that your young people have the phone number of a trusted adult or parent in their phone, in case they get in trouble. Using or trying to use a fake i.d. is also illegal. A conviction for teens could cause problems with scholarship applications, getting into college, landing a future job and lead to car wrecks. Adults are in danger too though. If you provide the alcohol and get caught, it could mean a year in jail and a hefty fine.
