Presentation on underage drinking and drug use trends Sept. 1 in Pinedale
by Sublette County Prevention Coalition
July 30, 2014
The Sublette County Prevention Coalition and the Prevention Management Organization will offer a free presentation on underage drinking, alcohol, clothing trends and drug trends from 6:30-8 p.m. on Monday, September 1 at the Hampton Inn in Pinedale. The presenter is Officer Jermaine Galloway (A Tall Cop Says Stop), an Idaho law enforcement officer since 1997 who has more than 11 years experience in underage drinking, drug and alcohol enforcement.
This free presentation will open your eyes to what is around you as a parent, and community member. Galloway’s presentation also covers current clothing trends of youth and young adults. Many of these clothing items are purchased unknowingly – and thus support drug financed companies and gang-related support. Many fashion trends also promote drug and alcohol symbols and behavior, unknowing to many parents but a symbol to the community. Galloway presents information that all parents, school teachers and police officers, counselors, nurses and anyone who works with our youth should know and understand.
At 6-foot, 9-inches tall, Galloway looks like an intimidating presence, but he is devoted and passionate about education, training and enforcement when it comes to alcohol and drug use and abuse prevention. Officer Galloway is a nationally and internationally recognized instructor and is well known for his countless hours of research on alcohol and drug trends.
Officer Galloway has worked several different assignments, including: crime scene investigation (CSI), DUI task force, officer mentoring and as a field training officer. He has coordinated and led thousands of alcohol related initiatives. He currently provides nationwide training to police officers, prevention personnel, educators, counselors, parents, treatment providers, health professionals and community coalition members on alcohol and drug trends, drug identifiers, drug clothing, party patrols, party drugs, Fake ID's, drug concealment, alcohol and energy drinks, drug logos, synthetic drugs, drug concentrates, non-traditional ways of alcohol consumption, cough medicine abuse, alcohol laws, drug stash compartments, popular culture music, and other community based alcohol and drug initiatives.
Galloway also spends much of his time speaking to youth on the harms of underage drinking, drug abuse and tobacco. Each year Jermaine has spent countless hours talking to youth at school assembly’s and town hall meetings. Currently, Galloway has trained more than 50,000 people nationwide and internationally.
