The Harford County Sheriff’s Office’s H.O.P.E. House will be on display at the MACo Winter Conference December 6-8 in the Hyatt Parking lot.
To raise awareness and educate parents on the early warning signs of controlled dangerous substance use and/or abuse, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office developed H.O.P.E. (Heroin Overdose Prevention Effort) House. The H.O.P.E. House is a mobile education tool, targeting the heroin epidemic, conceived by the H.O.P.E. Workgroup, a partnership between Sheriff Jeffrey R. Gahler and members of the Harford County Community, and brought to reality as the result of partnerships between the Sheriff’s Office, the H.O.P.E. Workgroup, Harford County’s Office of Drug Control Policy, the Harford Sheriff Foundation, the Citizen’s Police Academy and the Harford Fire and EMS Association. More details available.
Make sure to stop by the H.O.P.E House to tour the display of a young person’s bedroom and bathroom, and learn to recognize signs that may suggest drug use. Educational materials with information and materials on treatment and other resources will be available.
