Drug Endangered Children: Guide for Law Enforcement
This publication builds on the information and strategies outlined in the first Drug Endangered Children Guide for Law Enforcement, which details the core elements, benefits, and challenges of the DEC Approach. For this second guide, the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children reached out to professionals representing law enforcement, child welfare, prosecution, civil attorneys, medical, behavioral health, and treatment to learn from their experiences to gain a deeper awareness of DEC efforts. The guide discusses the rolls and responsibilities of these professionals as well as the ways in which the DEC Approach can change their response to drug endangered children.
