Law enforcement training scheduled

A new era of drug abuse is underway.  Driven by today's hyper-competitive society, the new wave of drug abuse is appearance and performance enhancement, and while it promises all sorts of competitive advantages, it carries with it serious risks that most of our young people are oblivious to.

Today's anabolic steroids users aren't looking to rebel or escape. Instead, they face extraordinary pressures to excel in the work force, school, sports, and social life.  As a result many of our adults and youth are looking for any advantage they can get and many are turning to drugs:  Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs (APEDs).  These substances are taken to improve strength and performance in athletes, and they are now being used by non-athletes to improve their physique - to look better.

The Taylor Hooton Foundation and the Texas Association of School Resource Officers will be offering regional training seminar named, Hoot's Chalk Talk.  This program has been approved by TCLEOSE (reporting number 58003).  The THF is working with TASRO to educate School Resource officers across the State of Texas.  Their first regional training together will be held in Frisco on Monday November 19th.  Details below.

For the past eight years, the Taylor Hooton Foundation has been providing  audiences such as the DEA, Medical Doctors, Students, Coaches and Parents across the US and Canada with a highly entertaining multi-media Hoot's Chalk Talk educational program delivered by expert speakers. The program delivers a strong message that captures the attention of its audience. The THF programs are researched-based and have been developed in conjunction with the medical community as well as young people. Science-based before and after testing conducted by SAMHSA has proved that knowledge improves and attitudes change when young people see our program.

Officers that attend this training will receive four hours of TCLEOSE credit.  Registration cost is $55.00 and must be paid prior to the training due to the limited number of seats available.  Registration will also cover the cost of membership with TASRO for one year.  NO REFUNDS will be given after November 1st.
