Free anti-meth training sessions offered to tribes
Tuesday, January 8, 2008
Filed Under: National

Lamar Associates is offering free anti-methamphetamine training sessions to tribes, starting next month in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

"This training helps law enforcement and tribal community programs come together," said Walter Lamar, president and CEO of Lamar Associates. "Through a collaborative problem-solving approach our training will help communities develop a realistic and sound strategy to attack the methamphetamine problem."

Topics include the meth crisis in Indian Country, signs and effects of meth in a tribal community and criminal jurisdiction. The sessions will be presented by law enforcement experts.

The first session takes place February 28-29 in Albuquerque. Future training dates have been set for Arizona, Nevada, Washington, California, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Florida.
