Program Description

The Murrieta Police Department, in cooperation with local hospitals, the fire department and other emergency response services offers a two day drunk/drugged driver awareness campaign to high school juniors and seniors.

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 and texting while driving. This powerful program will challenge students to think about drinking, texting while driving, personal safety and the responsibility of making mature decisions when lives are involved.

This event is offered during spring and has several community and corporate sponsors. Please call the program coordinator to assist as a volunteer or as a sponsor.
