MONROE COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT TO CONDUCT A MOCK CRASH EVENT AT CLARENDON HIGH SCHOOL
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office does NOT want the Class of 2019 to go out with a CRASH! Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputies will conduct a Mock Crash Demonstration to send an important reminder to Students and Parents about the dangers and potentially tragic consequences of unsafe driving behaviors such as Drinking and Driving, Distracted Driving, driving at unsafe speeds, and not buckling up.
The Mock Crash Event uses actual crashed vehicles and sets them up on the School Grounds. Students participate by acting out the roles of crash victims. The School’s Sophomore, Junior, and Senior Classes will watch the demonstration and learn how Emergency Responders conduct rescue efforts in real time. Parents and Guardians are encouraged to attend!
When: Wednesday, April 3 2019 at 1:00 pm
Where: Clarendon High School next to the Gym.
Who: Sheriff Michael K. Neal will speak
Why: Traffic crashes are the second leading cause of death for Teens, behind suicide, due to inexperience, risk-taking, distractions, and poor seat belt compliance.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office urges Parents and Guardians to always set a good example while driving by obeying all Traffic Laws. Parents and Guardians are also encouraged to regularly talk to their Teens about the dangers and potentially tragic consequences of underage drinking, drinking and driving at any age, not wearing a seat belt, speeding, and distracted driving.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Department is committed to quality service with an emphasis on Community Partnerships and Problem Solving, the core principles of Community Policing.
