Identifying who’s at Risk

Compact seeks to identify students and young adults who are at risk of substance abuse and addiction, or who might already be involved. To find these individuals, career law enforcement officers gather information from various sources. These include can include school resource officers, coaches, teachers, parents, community leaders, etc.

Scheduling a Meeting with the Family

Once an at-risk student or young adult is identified through the various sources, our investigators then schedule a meeting with the individual’s parents. This meeting is not for the purpose of an arrest, but rather the purpose is to share the information with the individual’s parents. The parents are then supplied with proven resources to help address this challenge.
