Parents Gather to Make Prevention a Priority in the Southington Community.

Adults from the Southington community gathered to learn about the dangers and realities our kids are facing today.

Presenters included Officer Kevin Naranjo from the Southington Police Department, Lt. Chris Bartolotta from the State Police, Patricia Rehmer from Hartford Healthcare and Martha Galligan representing a partnership with the US States Attorneys Office.

After the presenation, participants were encouraged to visit our resource fair that included tables from Southington High School, Southington Youth Services, Southington Police Department, Plainville-Southington Regional Health District, Rushford, Wheeler Clinic, Southington’s Health Outreach Project and the CT Association of Prevention Professionals with their Hidden in Plain Sight Bedroom presentation.

A special thank you to Mr. Brian Stranieri (Principal at SHS) and the Southington Police Department for their continued partnerships with our coalition and to the parents and guardians that attended our event.
