The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will host a NOPE Presenter Training to participating law enforcement agencies on February 18, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM at the Osceola Middle School Media Center located at 9301 98th Street N, Seminole.

The Sheriff’s Office partnered with families that have suffered the loss of a relative or friend from the use of illicit and/or prescription drugs, to establish the NOPE Pinellas Chapter in 2009.  This partnership is to educate communities about the dangerous consequences of abusing illicit and prescription drugs.

Sheriff’s Office members and volunteers from the community provide powerful NOPE presentations to children and adults in schools and communities about the real life dangers of abusing drugs.  The NOPE Pinellas Chapter has provided 183 presentations to 50,472 students and 4,633 adults in schools and community groups since this collaborative partnership began.

The Sheriff’s Office further assists the NOPE Pinellas Chapter with the NOPE National Candlelight Vigil Event held annually in memory of those lost to and suffering from addiction.  The NOPE Vigil events strive to raise awareness and open the doors to recovery for those with addiction.  This effort continues each year with updated material and a dedication to reducing illicit and prescription drug abuse.

The NOPE Presenter Training extends this mission to participating law enforcement agencies.  Sheriff Bob Gualtieri is scheduled to address the participants at the opening of the training.

Any questions regarding the training can be directed to Sgt. Dan Zsido of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office at 727-582-6200.
