This essay is about what we do in power. P.O.W.E.R. means Police Officers Working to Empower students and Reinforce prevention. P.O.W.E.R. teaches you about drugs, alchohol, tabbaco, and gangs and what they do to you. I now know ho w much trouble you get in for doing this stuff in excessive amounts. You are not allowed to drink until age 21 and smoke until age 18. If you do not respect these rules you can go to jail or juvenile. I want to avoid violence because I don’t want to go to jail or hurt someone. I don’t want to get high so I don’t go to jail. Gangs are bad because they are a big part of violence. Marijuana is a drug that some gangs get and use. That is what we have learned about in P.O.W.E.R. Drugs and alcohol is bad for you.
I pledge to be drug and alcohol free!
