Erie County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol and EHOVE Career Center are working together to address safety of the student body on and off campus. EHOVE School Resource Officers Deputy Winebrenner and Deputy Service coordinated a presentation for EHOVE high school students on Wednesday, February 1.
Students participated in Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Drive to Live educational program with Trooper Gutman and Trooper Smith. Intended to positively impact youth and engage them in conversations about good decision making, it focused on traffic safety, the importance of wearing a seat belt and observing the speed limit, details about current and new laws, following good practices, and distracted driving.
Sergeant Papineau from Erie County Sheriff’s Office also discussed another important topic that can affect youth – social media exploitation. He taught students about current trends and dangerous situations, and how they can get help.
