City of Green Drug Task Force to Host Hidden in Plain Sight on April 25
GREEN, OH -- Looks can be deceiving.
That’s the message behind a unique traveling exhibit created by the Bath and Copley Township Police Departments. The program and display “Hidden in Plain Sight” appears to be, at first glance, the bedroom of the average teenager. But amidst the clutter of clothing scattered on the floor, school supplies on a desk and personal care products on a vanity are more than 150 items that can actually be signals that a young person could be involved in risky, dangerous and even illegal activity.
The Green Drug Task Force is pleased to host “Hidden in Plain Sight” at the Central Park Community Hall on Thursday, April 25. Doors open for browsing at 6 p.m. with the presentation from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The exhibit is open to adults only. If you cannot arrive at the designated start time, join us when you can. FREE to attend. No registration required. A light dinner will be provided.
The audience is encouraged to explore and interact with items in the display which may be indicative that a teenager is involved in substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more. Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished.
