FEE: No cost-this program is sponsored by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office created Operation Street Smart in July 2002 as a way to take community oriented policing to a new level.  Street Smart is a collaborative effort between D.A.R.E. and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which is the Sheriff’s Office undercover narcotics branch. To date, Operation: Street Smart has been presented over 1,500 times to over 150,000 people throughout Ohio and the United States.  In May 2004, the program received the F.B.I. Director’s Community Leadership Award.

 The goal of Street Smart is to provide current and up-to-date narcotics information on trends, terminology, paraphernalia, concealment techniques, and physiological effects to those individuals who deal with today’s youth on a daily basis.  The target audience for street smart includes DARE and school resource officers, juvenile detectives, school administrators and school board members, teachers, and parents.  Other groups and organizations that deal with juveniles are also eligible to receive this program.  Past attendees have also included physicians, school nurses, juvenile prosecutors, juvenile probation officers, and children services employees.

 Three current/former undercover detectives, who possess over fifty years of combined narcotics experience, conduct the Street Smart presentation.  This program includes actual examples of current designer street drugs such as XTC, Bath Salts, Huffing, LSD, GHB, K2/Spice, and Khat. Current drug paraphernalia examples are available to depict the ease in camouflaging drug use from adults.  A strong emphasis is placed on the physiological effects of the drugs and indicators to look for.  So-called “traditional” drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, and methamphetamine are also covered extensively as teenagers still heavily abuse these drugs.  A portion of the program also deals with prescription medications, including DXM, due to the easy accessibility in most households.  The entire presentation is back dropped by a PowerPoint slide show depicting additional examples of the drug being shown.
