CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - Two Concord Police officers were recently honored for their efforts to keep students safe during prom season.
The Concord Police Department recently presented Vice/Narcotics Sergeant Cydney McGhee and ABC Officer Ryan Corl with the department’s Community Service Award for their work with Cabarrus Health Alliance and the Cabarrus County Schools Prom Promise program.
The program was developed to educated students at Central Cabarrus, J.M. Robinson, Cox Mill and Concord High Schools about the dangers of drinking and driving especially during prom season.
Prior to each prom, officers from the Concord Police Department went to each school to engage with students about drinking and driving.
Each student was given the opportunity to sign a pledge not to drink and drive during their prom.
Sgt. McGhee and Officer Corl worked extra hours on the program and assisted with the production of the “Prom Promise” video which was posted on the Concord Police Department’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iPalCl4RFE&t=13s
“The work of both McGhee and Corl shows their commitment to the welfare of the community beyond their normal call of duty,” the CPD posted on Facebook. “We thank Sgt. McGhee and Officer Corl for their dedicated work and congratulate both for being recognized for their efforts.”
