Campbell County Sheriff Robbie K. Goins announces the training and implementation of a new anti-drug program that will be taught by School Resource Officers under his command in Campbell County Schools. Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.) is a non profit organization, supported by dedicated police officers, committed to protecting our youth and communities from the proliferation of drugs, drug related crimes, peer to peer/cyber bullying and violence. We achieve our goals by collaborating with educators, community leaders, families and L.E.A.D. support organizations. We Create Safer, Healthier Communities Free Of Drugs, Bullying And Violence, On the Street & In the Classroom. Sheriff Goins says the awareness, education and instruction will be administered to all Campbell County students in the 5th grade.
Training Tuesday included One Day Instructor Curricula Training For: Officers already teaching School Based Prevention & Educators who are collaborating with their Law Enforcement Agency to Implement L.E.A.D. (Successful completion certifies the Officer as a L.E.A.D. Instructor in the K-8 Too Good for Drugs Curricula the Too Good for Violence-Social Perspectives K-8 Curricula.) The training was provided by LEAD Instructors from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Wendy Garrison and K-9 handler Deputy Kim Lay.
The sheriff plans to begin the implementation of the new program at the beginning of the new 2017-2018 school year. Sheriff Goins said, “We are excited and proud to be able to train our deputies and bring this new awareness and anti-drug program to our school children. We couldn’t do it without the care and support of School Director Larry Nidiffer, School Board of Education, Central Office Staff, School Principals, Teachers and support staff.
