Tables for the Campus Alcohol & Drug Education Center, California Highway Patrol and other resources gathered around Trinity Commons for student information.
Officers such as Traffic Collision and Parking Enforcement, Mike DiGiordano, volunteered to take photos of students inside patrol cars.

One emergency responder, John Perry, said that he had just gotten off of a 36-hour shift to answer student questions at the event.

More information about drug and alcohol safety is available at CADEC.
