LAYTON — The Layton City Police Department is committed to teen education. This spring, officers from the department's Community Resource Unit are teaching teen alcohol prevention classes at Northridge High School, Layton High School, Layton Christian Academy and the Northern Utah Academy of Math Engineering and Science. The class covers the negative effects alcohol has on a teen's developing brain, alcohol laws, addiction and the numerous hazards associated with binge drinking. Classes began in March and are scheduled through the end of May.

This year's classes are in keeping with our ongoing commitment to teen education. In 2008 Community Resource Officers taught classes to more than 1,200 students on crime prevention. In 2009 classes were taught to more than 1,300 students on dating violence. The Police Department is committed to making Layton City a safer place for teens to live, work and go to school. If you are a member or sponsor of a teen organization these classes are available upon request. Please contact the Community Resource Unit at (801) 336-3484.
