In partnership with JCISD, the Johnson City PD gives seminars for students regarding street drugs and how to recognize drug use by their friends. For parents, they offer a seminar on how to recognize drug use in their children. They also give parents free drug test kits. These kits are for the parents information only. If a child tests positive for drug use, parents do not need to report the results to the police.
