On Friday, police officers in Prague will be on alert in selected areas of the city. Children will be getting their report cards and statistics have shown that many who get bad grades take to alcohol to gather the courage to face their parents. Officers will be patrolling areas around school compounds and nearby parks. The Prague emergency services will also be on alert. The head of the services, Zdenek Schwarz, says a significant number of drunken children are taken to hospital every year on their last day of school.
