This is a no cost community event open to all parents and caring adults.
Drug Recognition Expert, Wes Tjaden, with the Grand Island Police Department will share signs and symptoms of drug use and current drug trends.
Dr. Carley Starling , PsyD, LP, a Clinical Psychologist with Boys Town will discuss how to approach teens about drugs and alcohol and share some tips and tricks to parenting a teen in today's modern world.
COME EARLY OR STAY LATE to view a trailer that was developed by the Iowa Narcotics Officers called "What You Don't See." What You Don't See is a mobile training trailer designed to simulate a "typical teenager's bedroom, complete with all the paraphernalia and imagery one would expect to see but not to necessarily understand from today's younger culture. In the room, attendees will learn the meaning of signs, symbols and clothing, common hiding spots and other precursors that can be a tip to otherwise unsuspecting parents.
The Trailer will be available from 5:00PM - 6:30PM prior to the presentation and again from 7:30PM -8:30PM following the presentation.
Come join us at Grand Island Senior High Auditorium on Monday, September 9th.
