Drug/Substance Abuse & Addiction Resources

In today's environment, we find new challenges at every turn. Keeping our kids safe and drug free is one of the ongoing missions and priorities of the police department.

Further, we recognize that parents need our support as well. In the coming months, we will continue to refine a program that will, in conjunction with other resources and community groups, provide parents a "tool kit" for dealing with the aforementioned challenges.
