County Attorney Kicks Off “Friday Night Football Patrol” to Prevent Teen Substance Abuse

PHOENIX, AZ (August 22, 2012) – Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery will kick off the second annual “Friday Night Football Patrol” at Desert Ridge High School in Mesa on August 24th, 2012 to encourage teens to stay off drugs and alcohol and steer clear of prescription medication abuse. Montgomery and volunteers from the County Attorney’s Office will visit ten area high schools during the current football season and offer students a chance to sign a drug-free pledge.

Teens who “take the pledge” will be entered to win a free car stereo system, courtesy of Rockford Fosgate, which will be handed out at halftime at each game. Local radio station 104.7 KISS FM will promote the program with an on-site Deejay, music and live call-ins at each game. Information on helping kids avoid substance abuse will also be available for parents attending the games.

“Our Friday Night Football Patrol reached thousands of students and parents last year and we expect to reach even more this season,” remarked Montgomery. “With the support of our partners Rockford Fosgate and 104.7 KISS FM, this proactive effort will help teens avoid the types of destructive decisions that all too often wind up in my office in the form of criminal cases. Our message to kids is simple: you use, you lose,” he added.

The first Friday night game will pit the Gilbert Tigers against the Desert Ridge Jaguars. Teens can sign the drug free pledge, receive free giveaways and enter to win the Rockford Fosgate stereo system prior to the 7:00pm kickoff.
