Task Force Meeting

Preliminary Task Force LogoMembers of the Plymouth County Drug Abuse Task Force met to discuss recent accomplishments.

The Task Force discussed the expansion of the Outreach Drop In Centers, the new challenges that are facing law enforcement with the legalization of Marijuana, the results of Chapter 55, and the Adverse Childhood Experiences (A.C.E.S) Study: Helping Traumatized Children Learn and Succeed.

With the statistics gathered by the A.C.E.S. Study, The District Attorney is working with schools in our county to train individuals on how to respond to a child who has experienced a trauma-related incident outside of school.
