Just home from work and reading a sad email about the terrible effects of drugs on a young woman.
As police officers we see situations like this too often…do you have a teenager who would read this true story? I’ve only changed the names…
“Jane Doe’s father has revoked as surety (found drugs and paraphernalia) in her apt in their basement, Jane is well aware that there is a warrant for her, she has tried to go to the Shelter, they wouldn’t take her, she is not welcome at the Domestic Violence Centre, she even tried to get admitted to the hospital and they wouldn’t take her unless she was suicidal. Her Probation Officer says her “residence” condition is live with her parents unless she is in the hospital needless to say he will also be charging her. She apparently is to be at the Meth Clinic daily, the last information received was that she is staying with an older man in his 60’s….she is pregnant and abusing street drugs…”
Jane is 26…I don’t know the age of her unborn child.
