Operation Street Smart is designed to educate parents, teachers, social workers, and community partners - anyone who has a connection with children - about current drug trends, terminology, and paraphernalia. The goal is to arm parents and teachers with the information necessary to recognize the influences of the drug culture on their children, familiarize them with the many different drugs to which our children may be exposed, and share the experience and knowledge of undercover narcotics officers so they are better prepared to help children make the right choices.
**Refreshments will be served and there will be childcare and supervised activities for children.
