Alcohol Awareness

Whether general in nature or tailored to the specific needs of any requesting group, RUPD offers a number of formal and informal programs and training on a diverse range of topics. In addition to the ones listed below we have also customized presentations for public schools in surrounding communities and for specific groups on campus. Prevention and awareness are the greatest deterrents to crime so we believe our support of these programs is essential to maintaining a safe community.

Driving While Intoxicated
“I only had two drinks, I can drive.” This age old line is brought to a different light in this RUPD program. Participants put on glasses that create a physical state of how much alcohol really does distort vision and perception while driving. Available upon request for groups of 5-10. For more information contact Lt. Brian Emmett at 848-932-4844.
