Thomasville-- It's prom season in south Georgia, and police are working to protect teens.   The Thomasville Police Department held their annual Safety Expo at Thomasville High School today to remind teens to be safe on prom night and anytime.

Officers say things like the "rollover simulator" and other demonstrations make a big impact on the kids. Sergeant Ricky Singletary says, "I truly think it makes a difference. We haven't had any issues with kids drinking and driving during the prom and stuff that we have had to deal with and that's the way we want to keep it."

Students also had some fun interaction with military representatives, local colleges, and other organizations.
