Winchester In The Know 

The Coalition, with its partner WinCAM, is excited to share NINE videos as part of Winchester In The Know. Hosted by WPD School Resource Officer and Coalition Liaison Sergeant Dan Perenick and featuring distinguished guests, each video explores a topic that all Winchester community members should know about, such as Marijuana and Alcohol use, Internet Safety, Restorative Justice. Through sharing information, the Coalition hopes not only to prevent issues and problems in our town, but also to raise awareness so that our community can be safer and healthier. It is never too early to learn about the resources that are available. 

Here is the link to access all of the Winchester In The Know videos:
