The B.A.S.I.C. Program

 Behaviors ~ Accountability ~ Services ~ Instruction ~ Choices

     The Buckhannon Police Department recognizes the severe consequences of underage drinking.  The department's goal is to educate young people about the dangers of underage drinking so they can make better decisions over the course of their lives. Studies have shown that if students are given the honest truths about drinking alcohol then they will make the right decisions.

B.A.S.I.C. Decisions

     B.A.S.I.C. Decisions is a movie about the dangers of underage drinking and its lifelong consequences.  The movie was filmed in its entirety in Buckhannon with help from many local citizens, and businesses. 

     The Buckhannon Police Department shows the movie to a variety of schools, youth groups and other community groups throughout the year.  For more information about B.A.S.I.C. Decisions, please contact the Buckhannon Police Department at (304) 472-5723 or e-mail Chief Matt Gregory.
