Using Law Enforcement Personnel in Drug Free (School and Community) Education.
Pittsburg State Univ., KS.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
The Pittsburg State University project described in this report was designed to use existing law enforcement personnel to provide drug-free education to students, primarily in grades 5 and 6, in a large, primarily rural area. The project developed a curriculum and provided inservice training to law enforcement personnel. In addition, the curriculum, Law Enforcement and Drug Education Recipe (LEADER), will be introduced to existing and additional university courses so that future law enforcement personnel will be trained to provide effective drug education. The curriculum emphasizes values clarification and counseling and communication skills, as well as prevention, rehabilitation, and the psychopharmacology, psychology, sociology and physiology of drug usage. Questionnaires that survey elementary and secondary student attitudes and knowledge are included. (KM)
