Prom Season Safety

It’s prom season, and along with concerns about dates, dresses,
and dinners – there is always concern about safety. North Fond du Lac Police
Chief Darren Pautsch is asking parents to have conversations with their teens
before the day of the big dance. Pautsch asks parents to “talk
to your kids about the behavior you expect from them. What is and isn’t
acceptable. Talk about consequences for bad choices.”

In a recent survey – Pautsch says 79% of students in our area reported not having consumed alcohol in the past 30 days.
He also recommends talking to teens about their behavior before prom and having
a key word to get them out of bad situations, with no questions asked. Some
area schools are also hosting post-prom events to provide other options for
activities after the dance.
