Special Press Release - May 10, 2018 - Drug Safety


On May 2, the Chillicothe Police Department partnered with Gateway Recovery and members of our community - Kati Johnson and Willy Deardorff - to present a drug safety talk to the Lifepoint Church Aftershock Youth Group. The presentation detailed the consequences of drug use, our goals as officers to combat the drug problem, and get the word to them before peer pressure gets to them. Kati and Willy told the youth their addiction stories and their roads to recovery from their addictions. They provided advice on how to avoid getting hooked on drugs and ways to assist in stopping issues before they begin. Gateway representative Maggie McCoy told the youth about the recovery process and how strict it is but how well it helps.


The team did a great job. Our goal is to get into the lives of our youth and let them know the pressures they will face and the life-long consequences they face from making one poor decision. Our hopes are that we spread the word before they face peer pressure and go down the wrong path. Chief Maples told the group, "I could just stand here and tell you that we'll arrest you for using drugs but how would that help? We want you to see it from our community members who have experienced it and are in recovery." The Chillicothe Police Department takes pride in keeping our community safe and clean which is why we take proactive and preventative measures.

We believe that interacting with the public will create a trusting relationship and also assist in keeping the community safe. We will be hosting different events where police officers of the Chillicothe Police Department will interact with the public. We will call this new program "Police in Action." The plan for Police in Action is to hold events throughout the year interacting with the community, such as presentations, safety events, sporting events, and youth events. Our first Police in Action event will be teaming with recovering drug addicts. Police in Action will team with recovering drug addicts bringing presentations throughout Chillicothe to assist in cleaning up our community. Our first presentation will be for the Lifepoint Church youth group on February 17, 2016. Our focus of this presentation will be to inform the youth of what the Chillicothe Police Department stands for and what we want to accomplish. We want the youth to hear the testimonies of the recovering drug addicts and the impact that drugs have had on their lives.
