Tall Cop Says Stop!

  • Woodland Park Community Center

This workshop is for educators, prevention providers, coalition members, law enforcement, probation officers, school administration, treatment, counselors, and parents. This workshop covers alcohol and drug clothing, signs and symptoms, alcoholic energy drinks, alco-pops, alcohol and drug concealment methods and containers, drug paraphernalia, drug related music and groups, logos, stickers, new technology, youth party tendencies, party games, non-traditional alcoholic beverages, social networking sites, synthetic drugs, drugs laced with other drugs, OTC drugs, inhalants, concentrates, E-cigarettes, and popular party drugs. This session also covers common stash compartments that can be used to hide weapons inside everyday clothing containers and other items, along with the relationship between alcohol, drug and violence tendencies.  This session is unique, in that it provides over 120 visual aids for attendees to hold and become familiar with. In today's culture everything is person-specific and has different meanings to different individuals. Meanwhile, certain items have gained popularity in the alcohol and drug scene - which changes every day. Officer Galloway tailors this session to each community that he teaches in, and constantly updates this training to keep up with the current trends. Officer Galloway will conduct a community scan the night before the presentation spending time walking through many of our local malls, convenience stores and retail stores, identifying popular culture alcohol and other items that promote drug abuse. This allows the community to know what is going on nationally and locally in their own retail stores. For each person to help prevent youth and adult substance abuse, you MUST know what is going on in your community. 

Please join us for this day long workshop!  More details coming soon!
