BETHALTO — State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons will discuss the dangers of heroin with Civic Memorial High School students at an assembly at 7:45 a.m. Monday, Nov. 24, at Civic Memorial High School.
Gibbons will be joined by Chief Investigator Kelly Rogers of the Madison County Coroner’s Office and Troy Police Officer Chris Coyne, who has served as a D.A.R.E. officer for more than 18 years.
There were 22 confirmed heroin overdose deaths in 2013. Gibbons, Coroner Steve Nonn and other law enforcement officials in the region continue to be outspoken in their effort to raise awareness about the risk and threat of heroin to Metro East communities and have spoken at multiple school assemblies as part of that effort. Earlier this month, Gibbons, Rogers and Coyne spoke to students in all grades at Collinsville High School.
