New Blog Tackles Tough Questions with Law Enforcement
Our new blog on the PACT360 website gives parents the chance to ask relevant and timely questions of law enforcement officers, prevention and treatment professionals – the women and men at the forefront of teen substance abuse and addiction.
Part of our community education program, the online forum provides law enforcement the opportunity to share their perspectives on prevention with parents, answering questions like: What are the latest drug trends? What things do parents worry too much about when it comes to drugs and alcohol? What are police officers in your state doing to keep our kids safe? Read their answers and join the conversation.
