OXFORD – When the Oxford Police Department asked different organizations for grants or donations for their annual driver’s education program at Oxford Academy High School, they did not have any luck.
Their luck changed when they asked Human Resource Manager Luke Murphy of Norwich Pharma Services if the company could help them with their goal. Once Norwich Pharma Services knew what the cause was for, they were immediately on board.
“We have taught this class for ten years. We teach students all about the driving laws and how to stay safe on the road. During one of our classes, students started asking more questions about driving under the influence,” said Chief Richard Nolan of the Oxford Police Department. This gave the Oxford PD the idea to purchase interactive equipment like Fatal Vision Goggles and driver simulation software to teach students more about driving under the influence. Norwich Pharma Services bought the equipment for the new Oxford PD facilitated program.
