Class Act, the drug-free and alcohol-free after-graduation party in Deming.
Sheriff Raymond Cobos said this year's donation, which comes from Community D-W-I
funds, will be over 900-dollars.
The Sheriff's Department usually budgets a 500-dollar donation from its C-D-W-I
funding, but had remaining money in the account after camera/radar units and
breathalyzers were purchased with the state funds.
Lieutenant Jon Mooridian said they asked state Traffic Safety Bureau officials if the
remaining 419-dollars and 32-cents could be added to the 500-dollar donation and the total given to Class Act... and state officials approved the donation. Mooridian said there is a provision in the grant for prevention measures... and one goal of the funding is to reduce teen alcohol-related crashes in the state.
