T.I.P.S. – Threats in Plain Sight

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017 from 7 PM - 8:30 PM

Carroll County Public Schools and the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office have joined forces to fight drug abuse by creating programs designed to stop drug addiction before it begins. A parent night program entitled T.I.P.S. – Threats in Plain Sight will be held at Century High School. This program is designed to educate parents on the sometimes subtle signs of drug use that may be evident if they were aware of what to look for in their child’s room.

T.I.P.S is a drug awareness program designed specifically for parents or legal guardians of teenagers.  A mock drug bedroom will reflect the hidden dangers of drug abuse and signs that are out in plain sight. Parents will tour the bedroom looking for signs of drug use, followed by a video displaying all the different signs throughout the room.  The evening also will feature Keith Mills from WBAL, the Special O.P.T.S. school video with Beth Schmidt, and a question and answer session.
