Muskogee Police Department Community Resource Officers Jeramie Garcia and Ronald Mayes along with local prevention specialists Lindsey Roberts and Julie Ledbetter from Neighbors Building Neighborhoods will be presenting local prevention efforts and outcomes at the National Prevention Network Annual Conference in Chicago, Il on August 27.

The purpose of the National Prevention Network Conference is to highlight the latest research in the substance abuse prevention field. It provides a forum for prevention professionals, coalition leaders, researchers, and federal partners to share research, best practices and promising evaluation results for the purpose of integrating research into prevention practice.

The workshop, titled Okie Prevention: Taking AIM at Prescription Drug Thefts in Rural Oklahoma, will address the issue of opioid drug theft and social availability and will highlight the efforts in Muskogee to reduce prescription drug thefts using comprehensive prevention strategies, nontraditional community partners and community-wide collaborations.
