Deputy Ben Cook

San Manuel Miner

Ben Cook, training officer for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office was at San Manuel High School earlier this month talking to the students who were going to the prom on Saturday. This year’s prom is being held at the El Conquistador Resort in Tucson. Officer Cook was the school resource officer in Oracle in 1997 and also was a patrol officer in the San Manuel area.

Officer Cook spoke to the high school students about alcohol awareness. He warned them about the dangers of driving impaired and also about the consequences if they are caught driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs as well as under age drinking. Convictions of these crimes could impact their lives for years. This was part of the Alcohol Awareness Program provided by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office to help students make correct choices and prevent alcohol related accidents.
