TIPS - Threats In Plain Sight

Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 7 PM – 8:30 PM

West Middle School

60 Monroe street, Westminster MD

The State’s Attorney's Office along with the Carroll County Health Department will present T.I.P.S “Threats in Plain Sight” at the West Middle School Thursday February 28, 2019 starting at 7:00 pm. T.I.P.S. is a teenager mock bedroom filled with hidden drug signs and paraphernalia throughout the room. The evening will begin with a video from a Carroll County family describing the heart ache and the effects of losing a loved one.

Parents will walk through a mock bedroom to determine the hidden signs for drugs and drug paraphernalia that are commonly used by teenagers. Several household items have been purchased to show the different forms of paraphernalia and secret hiding places for drugs. After the parents search the room, a short video will reflect on the different signs throughout the room. In closing, parents will have the opportunity to discuss the next step with their teenager. Parents will then be able to ask the difficult questions of what to do and how to get help. The evening is packed full of valuable information to save a life.
