November 2019

And just like "THAT"...the holidays are upon us! The holidays can certainly be stressful (not only for adults, but for children, as well)....We urge you to take some time from the "hustle and bustle" and enjoy the beauty of the holiday season.

Don't wait until the fourth Thursday in November, to sit with family and friends to give thanks. Make every day a day of Thanksgiving!” -Charmaine J. Forde

Lincoln High School ATI (Above the Influence) PSA

The amazing ATI (Above the Influence) Crew of Lincoln High School wrote and created their very own PSA, focusing on impaired driving. As members of the RI Police Chief's Youth Task Force, they attended the Youth Conference held this summer, sponsored by the Lincoln Prevention Coalition. Through this conference, they learned the importance and how to create a thought-provoking PSA for their peers and community, alike. This PSA has also been entered into a state-wide competition with other Coalitions and youth groups throughout RI. We wish them the very best of luck!

Fantastic job, LHS ATI Crew!! We are so very proud of you all!

Holiday Reminder! Secure your medications!

As the holidays quickly approach, many of us will have an influx of visitors and guests to our home. Out-of-town guests, distant relatives & friends stopping over or perhaps staying is what so many of us look forward to the most. We would like to urge you, be sure your medication is locked or securely put away.

If you have unused or expired medications, please dispose of them properly. There is a 24/7 drop-box, located in the police stations of Cumberland and Lincoln.

And be sure to keep "an eye out" for our newest Prevention commercials, airing on Channel 12 during the holiday season!

Holiday reminder! Please be sure to secure all medications!
