A Message from Sheriff Terry Rowan

In April 2022 - The Oregon-Idaho High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) issued a  Community Threat Bulletin titled Risk of Fentanyl overdose deaths in school-aged youth: Guidance for parents and schools. The bulletin addesses:  What is fentanyl?  Why is fentanyl a threat to youth in Oregon? How can school and parents work together to reduce youth overdose risks? What should schools do?  What should parents do? Please share this important information about the threat to the youth in our community and what can be done about it.
