Parents encouraged to attend Hidden in Plain Sight
Parents are encouraged to attend Hidden In Plain Sight - an awareness program - at Harvey High School on Thursday, February 16 at 5:30 p.m.
"Hidden in Plain Sight" is a unique traveling exhibit created and conducted by the Bath and Copley Township Police Departments and shows what appears to be - at first glance - the bedroom of the average teenager. But amidst the clutter of clothing scattered on the floor, school supplies on a desk and personal care products on a vanity are more than 150 items that can actually be signals that a young person could be involved in risky, dangerous and even illegal activity.
Doors open for browsing at 5:30 p.m. with a presentation beginning at 6 p.m. The exhibit is open to adults only. There is no charge for admittance.
The audience is encouraged to explore and interact with items in the display which may be indicative that a teenager is involved in substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more. Participants will be enlightened, educated and astonished.
The Painesville Police Department will also be involved in the presentation of the exhibit. For further information, contact Heidi Fyffe at 440.392.5083.
Riverside High School hosted the event last year.
