EAST GREENWICH â€” Local students and public safety officials are making sure that Red Ribbon Week is not just nine days of building awareness of drug and alcohol issues and how to avoid them.
At last Thursday's Red Ribbon Week conference, sponsored by Citizens Who Care at the East Greenwich Police Station Community Room, both sides of the equation discussed the steps they're taking to battle the problem and make sure the town keeps the week's message in mind.
Red Ribbon Week, celebrated from Oct. 23 through Oct. 31 this year, honors the memory of FBI agent Enrique Camarena, who was kidnapped and murdered by Mexican drug traffickers in 1985.
