This session can also cover common stash compartments that can be used to hide weapons inside everyday clothing containers and other items, in addition to the impact on traffic safety.    
This session is unique, in that it provides over 70 visual aids for attendees to hold and become familiar with. In today's culture, everything is person-specific and has different meanings to different individuals. Meanwhile, certain items have gained popularity in the alcohol and drug scene - which changes every day.  
Officer Galloway tailors this session to each community that he teaches in, and constantly updates this training to keep up with the current trends. Once in your community, Officer Galloway conducts a community scan spending time walking through many of your local malls, convenience stores and retail stores, identifying popular culture alcohol and other items that promote drug abuse. This allows the community to know what is going on locally, in their own retail stores. Galloway also covers the impact of legalization, if this affects your state.  
For each person to help prevent youth and adult substance abuse, you MUST know what is going on in your community.
