Scientology Volunteers Provide Drug Education Resources to San Francisco Police
Extending the campaign launched in San Francisco before the NFL championship game, Truth About Drugs volunteers donate booklets to local police to bolster drug education and prevention.
To assist the San Francisco Police Department in fighting the scourge of drug addition, volunteers from the Church of Scientology of San Francisco donated 10,000 copies of The Truth About Drugs booklets to the city’s 10 local police stations.
The donation was part of a citywide drug education initiative launched by the San Francisco Church in the period leading up to the Super Bowl on February 7. Each station was given displays of The Truth About Drugs booklets to place where the general public can access them, with significant additional copies for use by school resource officers and in the department’s mentoring and community programs.
The Scientologists also offered to provide workshops to train officers, reserve police officers and other volunteers to deliver drug education using The Truth About Drugs curriculum.
These materials have been used by 1,197 U.S. police departments in their drug prevention programs.
Scientologists on six continents work in their communities throughout the year to empower others with the truth about drugs. The Church and its members are dedicated to eradicating drug abuse through education.
The Truth About Drugs initiative is one of the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education and prevention campaigns.
