The Modesto Police Department is offering a drug recognition course today at its downtown Modesto headquarters as part of a community awareness series.
The course, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. at 600 10th St. in Modesto.
The course will cover early indicators every parent should know, including what to look for and why drugs are popular among youths.
A Modesto police drug expert will discuss the types of drugs and how they affect the body.
Never miss a local story.
The course will take place in the department's theater room, so seating is limited.
To reserve a seat, contact Modesto police Sgt. Jason Grogan at 572-9506 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
