This program features an interview with the Rhode Island Department of Corrections’ Chief of Information and Public Relations Tracey Z. Poole discussing an innovative public safety initiative in which a panel of male and female offenders doing long sentences for DUI-Death Resulting crashes, along with a parent of a victim of such a crash, speak to student and parent groups in a prison visiting room about the devastating consequences of their choices.

Data generated from the program state that nearly half of participating students said they were a passenger in a vehicle operated by someone who had been drinking.
