Newly licensed driver? SDPD announces DUI checkpoint and Teen Alcohol Awareness Program dates

The T.A.A.P. program is designed to address the questions that arise when your new high school driver is ready to hit the road: what happens when they drive, who is responsible for their actions, physically and financially.

The Teen Drivers will spend time with their parent (s) in a classroom environment lead by San Diego Police Officers and then the teens will be released to go to the DUI Checkpoint. The youth will be taken to an up and running DUI Checkpoint somewhere in the City of San Diego. The youth will be allowed to observe all elements of the DUI checkpoint from first contact through evaluation to arrest.

At the same time, parents have the opportunity for their own classroom time with SDPD until the teens return.

The youth will then be taken back to the Police Station and after a short debriefing they be released back to their parents. Sign up for this program will be on a first come first-served basis and the program will be announced through local community based organizations and injury prevention coalitions as well social media.
