COMMUNITY AWARENESS/DRUG AND ALCOHOL EDUCATION:

The Coppell Police Department, in partnership with the Coppell Independent School District, takes a very proactive stance against drug use. One of our primary tools is a specifically designed program used to educate and inform our citizens, both school-age children and adults alike. A large portion of this curriculum centers on strategies students can use to avoid becoming involved with narcotics and their ultimate consequences. Other parts include dealing with peer pressure, avoiding conflict and developing good decision-making skills. If you have any questions or would like to find out more about this program, please call Sergeant Eric Debus at 972-304-7072.
