Sweep of school finds no drugs

I recently spoke with the Washington Police Chief, Ken Hahn, about the prevalence of drugs in our public schools. I was concerned because there had been 4 of our youths die, in the last year, due to heroin over doses.

If there is a silver lining to drug use, the drugs were not bought and sold in our community, but instead purchased by the youths, out of town and brought here for their personal use.

As a follow-up, a random screen was recently completed at the High School, and no drugs were found. The screen included a drug sniffing dog. This is a very promising sign.

We also, recenlty, lost some of our youths in car accidents. I understand neither youth were wearing safety belts. Seat belts save lives – period. Drill the habit into your childrens heads from day one. No seat belt, no keys.

  1. the drugs are there… trust me. do you realize how tiny the amount of heroin required for a good shot is? the places it can hide? yeah… have fun finding that.

  2. Katie,

    I am not so naive as to believe there are no drugs in our schools. When you say “the drugs are there, trust me” it tells me that you may know something. If you have any information regarding drug use, PLEASE call our local police department and make an anonymous report.

    Thanks for taking the effort to leave a post.
