HOLDEN – The Holden Police Department is coming up with a new way to reach out to kids about the dangers of drugs.
The station obtained a board that displays a variety of drugs and the dangers of each of them.
Chief Chris Greeley said “We’re seeing an increase in drug overdose even here in little old Holden. If we’re experiencing multiple overdoses per year in a place like Holden Imagine what’s going on in Bangor, Brewer, Lewiston and Portland. We are hoping to educate people that this stuff is dangerous. So we got a new board to be able to do that and we’ll be doing that immediately.”
They are hoping that this board will help kids identify what each drug looks like and know the harmful affects of them.
