Clark County Sheriff’s Office to host fentanyl awareness program at Ridgefield High School

By , Columbian staff writer

The Ridgefield School District and the Clark County Sheriff’s Office are holding a public information meeting about the dangers of fentanyl at 6 p.m. Nov. 16 in the Performing Arts Center at Ridgefield High School. All parents and community members are welcome.

Clark County Sheriff’s department Sgt. Bill Sofianos, currently the supervisor of the Clark-Vancouver Regional Drug Task Force and former school resource officer, will present information on local fentanyl and drug seizures, trends and safety information for parents and children to be aware of.

The event comes as law enforcement seeks to make communities in Southwest Washington aware of increases in overdoses from fentanyl-based counterfeit substances, some of which can appear in the form of colorful candies that pose a danger to children.

All parents and community members are welcome. Ridgefield High School is located at 2630 S. Hillhurst Road in Ridgefield.
