Drug-Free All Star Meeting at the Angelina County Jail

For the Drug-Free All Star October meeting, the All Stars toured the Angelina County Jail and received training to participate in alcohol compliance checks. The Drug-Free All Stars of Angelina County are a group of high school seniors that serve as role models for the community by living an alcohol, tobacco, and drug-free life. The All Stars saw first-hand the consequences of substance misuse and what daily life is like for inmates. Texas Alcohol & Beverage Commission Sergeant Bryant Jones trained the Drug-Free All Stars to conduct alcohol compliance checks to prevent the sale of alcohol to minors by local businesses. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (2021), 15.1% of youth aged 12 to 20 used alcohol in the past month. Alcohol compliance checks are an important prevention strategy to reduce alcohol access for minors.


A special thank you to Sheriff Tom Selman, Warden Nick Gardner, Judge Billy Ball, Captain Alton Lenderman, Mental Health Deputy Jennifer Payne, and Sergeant Bryant Jones for providing this experience for the All Stars. To find out more about the Drug-Free All Star program, contact Abby Baker at (936) 634-9308.


The Drug-Free All Star program aims to reduce underage drinking, and in partnership with TxDOT, reduce crashes, injuries and death on Texas roadways.
