Tall Cop Workshop 

The Dynamics of Opioids
Presented by Officer Ryan Buzzini, Tall Cop Facilitator

This training covers one of the fastest growing drug trends in America – Opioid abuse.  With the ever-changing atmosphere in today's culture, it is imperative to keep track of all prescription and non-prescription medicines that not only children, but adults are using, to get high.

This training will demonstrate the methods of attainment (including the Dark Web and how BitCoin comes into play), the signs and symptoms of influence, and many type of paraphernalia being used.  Pictures of drug paraphernalia will also be displayed so attendees can understand all the ways abusers are ingesting, smoking, injecting, and even snorting drugs.  For example, prescription pills and meth are now being mixed with glycerin and smoked in a vape pen. Not only are prescription drugs being abused, but new designer drugs are flooding American streets on a weekly basis.  And because most adults who use drugs (legally or illegally also know how to drive vehicles, the topic of drugged driving will also be covered. Humor and entertaining stories are also incorporated to keep the attendee attentive.

This comprehensive training covers everything from Ativan to Zohydro.
