EVERY 15 MINUTES
The Castle Rock Police Department in company with the Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office presented the Castle Rock High School senior class with the "Every 15 Minutes" program April 30 - May 1. This is an annual event held every spring at the High School.
The Every 15 Minutes Program offers real-life experience without the real-life risks. This emotionally charged program, entitled Every 15 Minutes, is an event designed to dramatically instill teenagers with the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol. This powerful program will challenge students to think about drinking, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions when lives are involved.
The program is based in the national statistic that 1 person dies approximately every 15 minutes in the United States due to a alcohol related collision.
The Castle Rock Police Department thanks the following for helping make this program happen:
Cowlitz County Sheriff's Office
Cowlitz County Chaplancy
Mt St Helens Motel
Castle Rock School District
