The Protecting You/Protecting Me program is a national program developed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving to promote safety and alcohol prevention in grades 1-5. The Southern Ute Police Department holds the program each year at the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy, and finishes off the semester with a graduation luncheon for the kids, who earn a cake to go along with their diplomas.
