Marana In The Media: Marana HS students learn consequences of substance abuse

KOLD posted a story about an interesting event that the Marana Police Department participated in at a local high school. 

In collaboration with the Marana Prevention Alliance, the Marana Police Department and the Pima County Sheriffs Office took part in a “Teen Maze” event at Marana High School to highlight the potential legal, health, and social dangers that are associated with substance abuse.

More than a half dozen law enforcement vehicles were lined up outside the school Tuesday, as officers and deputies volunteered their time to give students an inside look at the consequences of their actions involving substance abuse. Held at high schools across the area, it is a 30-minute interactive event where students go step-by-step.

“So it starts off with they are all at a party,” said Officer David Danielson, Community Resource Officer with Marana PD. “Based on their choices it leads down a different path. So they pretty much follow their consequences and see where it goes from there.”

Scenarios include leaving the party intoxicated and then getting pulled over, or being involved in a serious injury accident.
