Hidden in Plain Sight

Hidden in Plain Sight
Posted on 10/09/2018

For many parents and guardians, if a quick scan of their child’s bedroom doesn’t reveal a carton of cigarettes or empty beer cans, there is little to worry about.

But in today’s world, many dangers are “hidden in plain sight.”

“Hidden in Plain Sight” is the name of an in-depth, interactive program used by the Culpeper Police Department to educate parents on the signs of risky behavior in children. In the program, parents and guardians walk through an exhibit designed to resemble a teenager’s bedroom. Most of the items are extremely hard to notice or detect. Examples include vapes that look exactly like thumb drives or alcoholic mixes packaged in cans very similar to energy drinks.

At the request of the Safe Schools Task Force, Louisa County Public Schools will be presenting “Hidden in Plain Sight” at Louisa County High School on Tuesday, November 13th. The event begins with a free dinner at 5:30 p.m., with the presentation following immediately after. Admittance is also free, and prizes will be given out to attendees as well.

Louisa County Public Schools is partnering with the Culpeper Police Department for the presentation.

The exhibit is for adults only, although entertainment will be provided for children attending. More details will be released in the upcoming weeks ahead. Please reserve the date on your calendar!
