Operation Street Smart drug education event Apr. 3

Posted on: March 16, 2016

Heroin. Marijuana. Meth. Bath salts. These substances are in the headlines on a daily basis. To better inform parents and the community on the present danger of drugs and drug abuse, Little Miami Local Schools will host an informational session on Sunday, Apr. 3 from 3 to 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

Operation Street Smart was created by the Franklin County Sheriff's office in 2012 as a way to take community-oriented policing to a new level. This program is designed to educate parents, teachers, social workers and community partners about current drug trends, terminology, and paraphernalia. Our D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) officers work hard in the schools to help children make the right decisions and say no to drugs. Little Miami is taking the extra step to bring Operation Street Smart to the community.

Three law enforcement officers from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office will discuss the information necessary to recognize the influences of the drug culture on their children, familiarize them with the many different drugs our children face, and share with them the experience and knowledge of undercover narcotics officers so they are better prepared to help their children make the right choices.

The event is free and open to the public.
