Unit 2: Criminal Law



Activity: Create a Bulletin-Board Display on a Drug Awareness Program

As part of their community-policing mandate, the RCMP runs several Drug Awareness Service Programs that have been developed in cooperation with provincial education and addiction services. By developing these programs, the RCMP is working toward making communities healthy and safe.

In this activity you will make a bulletin-board display about a drug awareness program or program component (e.g., a publication) of your choice.

1. In preparation for researching a particular drug awareness program, visit the RCMP Drug Awareness Service. Quote their mission statement and summarize their belief statements.

2. Select one of the following programs and research how it promotes drug awareness. Information on the programs can be found on the Web site by clicking on Programs and then selecting the program of your choice. Brochures can be downloaded.

  • Police Assisting Community Education (PACE)

  • Drugs in the Workplace: The Winning Solution

  • Go All the Way Without Drugs

  • Drugs and Sport

  • Aboriginal Shield

  • Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE)

3. Prepare a bulletin-board display about the drug awareness program you reviewed in Question 2. Include the following.

  • What are the goals of the program?

  • Who is the target audience for the program?

  • Who would be interested in acquiring and using the program components?

Direct your display to the individual who would be interested in using the program and not necessarily the target audience (e.g., teachers of Grade 5 students, not the students). Your display should contain both written information and visuals that illustrate the activities of the program. Contact information should be included as well.

4. For an extended activity, visit the Health Canada Website. Take The Steroids Quiz to determine your knowledge about the use and effects of anabolic steroids.
