Police Search for Drugs at Milford High School
A recent canine search at Milford High School in Oakland County led police on a hunt for drugs and contraband. Principal, Kevin McKenna said some prohibited items, such as nicotine and liters were found, but the sweep did not turn up any “hard drugs.” Anyone that was arrested or ticketed would have to appear at the 52-1 District Court to face a judge.
Police officers have been cracking down on drug use in high schools throughout Metro Detroit. They are using canine units to search hallways, classrooms, lockers and parking lots for illegal drugs. Most, if not all of high schools have some level of drug use and authorities are aiming to prevent this dangerous behavior.
Parental involvement is a major component to keeping drugs out of schools. Parents need to be aware of what is going on in schools and that drug use is not an inner city problem, or something that targets a specific social economic class, it can affect anyone, anywhere. If a child is caught with drugs they will be charged with a criminal offense and will face serious consequences.
Before you think this is a good thing, remember that if your kid gets caught its not a slap on the wrist. They will not be turned over to you for parental discipline. Its a criminal conviction that could ruin their future before they even have a chance to get started. The prosecutor’s and judges will make the decisions without you.
