The Lloydminster RCMP and Lloydminster Youth Council are excited to announce Project #180ALERT.
The project is a youth driven initiative that looks to raise awareness about the many dangers of drug use in our community.
“This project has been in the works for some time as a grant was applied for and received during the last school year,” said Lloydminster RCMP Const. Grant Kirzinger.
There are many different aspects of this project including; the creation of a video, social media campaign and the first event, a drug forum on Nov. 21.
The forum will be held upstairs at the Centennial Civic Center starting at 5 p.m.
Everyone is invited and there will be gift cards, pizza and many other fun activities to take part in.
There will be different presenters, including Dr. Chapelski and some of the Lloydminster  Bobcats talking about their experience in Vancouver.
The goal of the forum is to get a better understanding of the drug-related issues in Lloydminster, how best to address the issues, and to come up with ideas for the video that will be released later in the year.
“This collaboration is exciting and we are looking forward to the results. The Youth Council and the RCMP see this as a priority and that is why we have joined forces to raise awareness in our community,” said Kirzinger.
