Drug Endangered Children Awareness ONLINE

This course examines the need and advantages of collaborative working arrangements at the local level between law enforcement, Division of Children and Family Services and other social service agencies when working cases that involve children living in homes where illegal drug activities occur. Participants will learn the history of the DEC movement nationally, the general history of drug use in the U.S., the effects and dangers of children living in homes where drugs are being used, manufactured or sold, drug recognition information and the advantages of local collaboration when dealing with DEC cases. Information about the Arkansas DEC Alliance will be shared and the Arkansas definition of drug endangered children will be explained.

This class can be taken as a stand-alone course or as a prerequisite for the intense DEC collaboration workshops that are offered around the State.
