Partnering to Protect Our Kids

On October 15th, 2014 the Fullerton Police Department partnered with the Fullerton School District to provide education and training to parents on the dangers of drug abuse. The presentation was designed to educate parents on the current and emerging drug trends.

According the National Institute of Drug Abuse, “Most people use drugs for the first time when they are teenagers” (NIDA, 2012). Additionally, more than half of the new illicit drug users begin with marijuana.

Members of Fullerton PD “Partnered to Protect” and educate parents at Beechwood Elementary with parents from surrounding schools. Special thanks to Sergeant Tim Petropulos, Sergeant Pedram Gharah, Corporal Perry Thayer, Officer Eric Franke and Officer Ryan O’Neil.
