On Monday, 10/17, the Coalition hosted a town hall meeting to discuss underage drinking, vaping and drug trends. Representatives from the New York National Guard Counterdrug Task Force, the Director of LI Prevention Resource Center of Family Service League, and 2 police officers from the 4th precinct of SCPD were the presenters. Topics included the social host law, local areas of concern (where children are "hanging" out and drinking) and current statistics regarding underage drinking and drug use, both countywide and Commack specific. The evening ended with some questions from those in attendance.
If you are interested in more meetings such as these, or have ideas/suggestions for other topics, please contact us. We'd love to hear from you!
