Community partners work together in drug enforcement initiative

The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service, in conjunction with the Algoma District School Board (ADSB) and the Huron Superior Catholic District School Board (HSCDSB) joined together in an ongoing initiative to keep our schools safe and drug free.

During the week of January 6 to 10, 2014 officers from the High School Liaison Office and the Drug Enforcement Unit conducted an enforcement initiative at our local high schools.

The initiative is part of Project A.B.C.D. (Action for Building a Community that is Drug Free), which is a community partnership aimed at supporting an ongoing commitment to safe, drug free schools.

As a result of the action, five students were arrested for drug related offences.

A 15-year old female and a 16-year old male were charged with possession of a controlled drug or substance and will appear in court on February 11.

Three students were diverted under the Youth Criminal Justice Act to attend drug and alcohol counselling.

The Sault Ste. Marie Police Service would like to thank the ADSB and the HSDCSB as well as our other community partners for their ongoing efforts in the action for building a drug free community.
