    With the ever increasing news around the dangers of underage drinking and drug culture, below you will find informative resources, researched by VCPE, that schools, parents, and staff may be unaware of.  We encourage you to use these resources for staff professional development, parent education/awareness, and to educate students about the dangers of alcohol and drugs in today's world.  As Officer Galloway (Tall Cop Says Stop) says, "You can't stop what you don't know".  Please educate yourselves.

    1.  Follow "Tall Cop Says Stop" on Facebook or check out his website for the most up-to-date information about JUULing, alcohol, drugs, and drug culture among America's teen population.

    2.  Power to the Parent  - Hidden in Plain Sight
    Provides parents a view of a teen bedroom with clues for parents to determine whether their teen may be experimenting with drugs and/or alcohol.

    If your school would like free REVIVE! Naloxone opioid reversal lay rescuer training for your school/staff/parent group(s), please contact our office at

    NOTE: More resources will be posted on the "Accredited Schools"  and "Training Resources" tab.
