Know Our Community
One of many areas of need we are focusing on is the problem of prescription drug abuse. To most effectively address this harmful and life-threatening problem we need to understand how it is taking place in our community. We are asking that you would take a few minutes to help us learn what you know is going on in Tippecanoe County. The Data Needed is here.
Another way to better know our community is to have simple conversations with the people we see every day. By asking questions in casual conversation and letting us know what you learn, you will help us in promoting a safer and healthier community where you live! Talking Points here to help you initiate these conversations.
