"You Can't STOP What You Don't Know!"
This saying really captures why I do what I do. When it comes to alcohol and drugs, trends are always changing. There are many everyday items that you wouldn’t even take a second look at, but with an understanding of this culture you quickly find out that there is another meaning. It can be hard to keep up with all the trends and practices of substance use and abuse as they are always evolving. Communities want to stop the underage drinking and drug usage in their community. After attending one of my presentations you will know what is out there, where to find it, how people are abusing it, how items have become popular and why you had not heard of it, new trends, logos, stash compartments, products, and much more along with having the knowledge to stop it!
Many of you might be wondering why my website is called "Tall Cop Says Stop"? Well, I am 6'9" tall, and that is the first thing everyone notices about me whether I am working as a police officer or teaching. So it just made sense to put that into the name of my work.
I have been working against community alcohol and drug abuse problems for the last 15 years. During that time I have seen a lot of changes occur in our society and with our youth, whether at a large underage drinking party, in some retail stores, at a town hall meeting, at a community event, during an assembly or in the classroom. Also, while doing research of the ever-evolving drug culture at various festivals across the country, I have quickly found that new trends are sweeping different areas of the country. The difficult part for many is, not only keeping up with those trends, but finding out what something means. That is where I come into play. Every item, trend, and logo is specific to that person which can make it even harder to identify. But, I believe if I can help you to understand the culture, you will be able to identify the culture.
One thing holds true! All of us are dealing with underage drinking and drug usage in our community. Now what are we going to do about it? Are we going to meet and "round table" the issues every month? Or are we going to get out there, educate ourselves and do something about it? If there is a logo, identifier, term, picture, song, or clothing item, possible stash compartment, new drug product, right in front of you and you don't even realize its relevance in the drug or alcohol culture, how can you prevent, reduce or stop it?
I will teach your community or organization how to "get out there and do something about it" through education, prevention and/or enforcement. Whether you need to get organized so you can get started, or you want to take your program to new heights -- each presentation I give will help you do that! All of my presentations are geared towards the communities I teach in. I have no "canned presentation". Currently, I average over 200 presentations per year that range from 25 to a 1,000 in number of attendees in the session. I conduct classes and keynote presentations that last 1 hour or 2 days. The trainings range from talking to educators, law enforcement, treatment, health professionals, probation, youth, parents, counselors, judges, medical personnel, the media, business leaders and community organizations. Personally, I want to be taught tools that I can use throughout my community and make a positive impact, and that is what the training will provide you.
I train groups the way I want to be trained. A visual, interactive and class-specific training! Remember, YOU CAN’T STOP WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW!!!
