Young people aged 14 to 17 are encouraged to register for the Coroner Visitation Summer Camp program, a three-hour class that initially will be offered Tuesday, June 18, 6-9 p.m. at the Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner at 1704 Pinto Lane in the Las Vegas Medical District.
The program will include a section on discussing dangerous driver characteristics, coroner's office case scenarios and small-group activity of building the ideal driver. At the end of the class, the youth will prepare for and take a tour of the Coroner's Office. Classes will be limited to 20 participants and a parent must sign a consent form.
The student and his or her parent or guardian will need to fill out an application that includes a consent form, which is available in person or online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov. Please bring the completed application to the Coroner's Office in order to register your child for the class.
"The class will have an emphasis on educating our younger generation of the consequences of their actions and decisions with regards to driving," said Coroner John Fudenberg. "We would really like to be proactive and provide this service to the youth of our County before they start making a habit of violating our traffic laws." Those who complete the program will be provided a certificate of completion.
Based on interest, five more classes may be scheduled for subsequent Tuesdays this summer.
