Parents Who Host, Lose the Most -- Don't Be a Party To Teenage Drinking


This is a public awareness program aimed at educating communities and parents about the health and safety risks of serving alcohol at teen parties. The program takes place at state and local levels, concentrating on celebratory times for youth, such as homecoming, holidays, prom, graduation, and other times when underage drinking parties are prevalent.

This program encourages parents and the ENTIRE community to send a unified message that teen alcohol consumption is unhealthy, unsafe and unacceptable.

Statistics show that the number of youth using alcohol has declined, but there is further work to be done. The fact is, underage drinking is hazardous to the health and safety of our children. Parents play a major role in their child's decision to make healthy choices.

While laws vary from state to state, the campaign's message is a universal one: It is ILLEGAL, UNSAFE, and UNHEALTHY for anyone under 21 to drink alcohol.

*****************


ADVISORY: TELEPHONE SCAM ALERT

It’s come to our attention that an individual or individuals is making calls to local residents, representing themselves as officers or detectives from the Howell Police Department or other local law enforcement agencies. Sometimes they identify themselves as being from the “Warrant Division”. The caller advises that there is a warrant for the persons’ arrest, and that they must immediately send money, usually requesting the resident immediately get a money order or green dot money card. They have in the past identified themselves as “Officer Delaware” or “Detective Harris”. They can be very persuasive and convincing while at other times are aggressive and demanding.

Please be aware that no one from the Howell Police Department would ever make such a phone call requesting money.

Residents are advised to never give out any personal or financial information over the phone to someone you don’t know. If you suspect that something is not right, hang up and make direct contact with the institution they claim to represent to determine the validity of the call.

If you have any questions or concerns about being a victim of this scam, please contact your local police department, or call 911 to make a police report.
