Rape by intoxication is a growing crime, particularly among persons 18-25 years old. That is why the PRICE Coalition was formed through the San Diego County District Attorney.
Members of the coalition include law enforcement, local universities and colleges, military, and the Center for Community Solutions. These groups have teamed up to educate young people how they can stop this crime before it happens, how to recognize the warning signs and look out for those around you.
