Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
The relationship of drug and alcohol use to crime is well known and documented. It is estimated that *18% of felony crimes are committed to obtain money for drugs, and even more telling, *24% of violent crimes are committed while the perpetrators are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Bringing the effective drug education materials of Foundation for a Drug-Free World to our society is their passion. Connecting with others who work to protect the lives of honest people is a natural partnership.
Law enforcement groups welcome their educational materials because they know full well how dangerous drugs are to the individual, how much of crime is caused by drug use and dependency, and indeed what a large percentage of crimes are actually committed by people who are high or intoxicated. To offer help, Consumer Energy Solutions (CES) attended several key law enforcement events.
National School Safety Conference — Orlando, Florida
This national conference is held for school police officers, principals and superintendents from around the United States. Attendees are presented new ideas and technology to keep their schools safe.
We signed up 100 schools from over 30 states around the country, for the Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s Educators Program. Each of these has approximately 500-1,000 children in attendance. Thus, these 100 active Educators will be potentially reaching upwards of 100,000 children with the TRUTH about Drugs.
At the conference, CES representatives attended an in-depth briefing on the new synthetic drugs that are currently ravaging the country, such as synthetic marijuana, "K-2", and "bath salts", to name a few.
This detailed presentation was headed by the Director of Poison Control for the state of Louisiana, Mark Ryan, PharmD. Mr. Ryan showed us the most up-to-date facts and figures on the proliferation of these monstrous synthetic drugs. He updated them on current legislation and on the physical and mental impact upon the users.
They met with Mr. Ryan personally, and spoke with him about CES and the Foundation for a Drug Free World and it's mission to educate the community at large. Mr. Ryan was very interested in the program. He asked for the materials to study, which was presented to him.
Florida Sheriff’s Association Summer Conference — Kissimmee, Florida
Consumer Energy Solutions attended this annual conference with it's own booth, promoting the materials of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World.
CES Employees Lynn Posyton and Montana Spencer were able to introduce the materials to many Sheriffs, their deputies, staff, wives and children who visited our information presentation over several days. Our Foundation for a Drug-Free World materials were eagerly received. They signed up many Sheriff’s departments for the Educator’s programs and distributed hundreds of booklets and DVDs to the attendees and vendors.
The Conference was addressed by Secretary of the Florida Dept. of Corrections, Mr. Kenneth Tucker.
Mr. Tucker spoke to the hundreds of attendees on the importance of law enforcement reaching out and working with community initiatives in order to lower the inmate recidivism rate in Florida.
Afterwards they met with Mr. Tucker and his Inspector General, Mr. Jeffery T. Beasley. Lynn and Montana briefed them on their works with the Foundation for a Drug- Free World program, and informed them that the program is in full operation at Hernando County Women’s prison and getting rave results, with over 400 women now graduated from the program thus far.
Mr. Tucker and his Mr. Beasley were very interested in this program and it’s proven value in keeping citizens off drugs and out of jails.
