This is an English speaking version – anyone who needs an interrupter will have to make their own arrangements prior to scheduling. All in-person Victim Impact Panels have been suspended at this time.
DESIGNATED DRIVER BOOTH
Albany County STOP-DWI continues to promot sober driving at the Times Union Center and other area venues with their "Designated Driver Booth." This program allows designated drivers to sign a pledge at the event and in return get a free bottle of water! Look for us around the area!
CONGRATULATIONS!! To First Sergeant Tracy Mance
First Sergeant Mance was awarded the "Roy Thorpe" Award for her work with the 'Choices' Program
“Choices” is a high impact awareness program targeting impaired driving, drug use, and addiction. With the increase of drug and alcohol use both nationally and locally, it is important to educate the community at all levels. This innovative program is a combination of open discussion, visuals, and speakers to increase the overall awareness of the effects of the consequences of risky behaviors. “Choices” currently targets teens from the 8th grade on up, with future aspirations to include a parent sessions.
“Choices” is a free three hour program currently offered to area school districts as a field trip. Other options are available upon request. For more information or scheduling please call (518) 487-5400 or email email@example.com.
