Sex, Drugs, and Alcohol: A Student Safety Presentation #ShareGJ

Posted on Updated on

StudentsAs parents, there are few things that we value above the health and safety of our children.  Any parent of a high school or college bound son or daughter knows the concern that the influence of peers often outweighs mom’s or dad’s input.

The Grand Junction Police Department would like to invite parents, as well as high school and college age young adults, to join us for a frank discussion about how we can equip our young people to make safe, smart choices that can help protect them and their friends.  Sergeant Suzette Freidenberger, a 15 year veteran of the Grand Junction Police Department, offers a candid presentation about how to navigate the many choices with which young people are confronted.  In settings where alcohol and/or drugs are present, an ill-considered choice can have long term consequences.  We will be joined by a panel of guests, including health care professionals, school resource officers, and other invested community members.

It is important to empower our sons and daughters to recognize these serious circumstances and be ready to make sound decisions that can protect them and their peers.  Parents, please know that this will be a candid discussion, with graphic language and content.  It is strongly recommended that parents plan to attend with their high school and college age children, and be part of the conversation.

When: Thursday, September 14, 6:30pm

Where: Grand Junction Police Department, 555 Ute Avenue

Please contact Heidi Davidson at (970)549-5114, or at, to RSVP or with questions.
