BROOKFIELD, Conn. -- Through Brookfield High School's Driver Education program partnership with the Brookfield Police Department, students spend three evenings with officers -- learning safety tips, Do's & Don'ts, motor vehicle law and safe driving practices.
The Brookfield Police Department has been partnered with Brookfield High School and its Driver's Education program for many years.
BHS Driver's Education classes come down to the Police Department two or three times a year.
These students are also exposed to actual 9-1-1, police and fire audio recordings of motor vehicle accidents that occurred as a result of impaired driving.
These recordings hit home with the students, as they are real audio recordings of incidents within their own community.
