Prom Night Parties

Drinking is a big concern among Lufkin Police Officers.

That's because Saturday's prom night for Lufkin High School. The big dance isn't the fear for officers, it's the after-party, where many times teens go unsupervised and drink heavily.

Lt. David Young of the Lufkin Police Dept. said, "officers will be on the lookout for these parties, officers will be patrolling the local motels and watching for minors in possession at any of these type parties."

Police suggest knowing where your child is going to be after the prom and making sure that it's chaperoned by a responsible adult.
