Multiple agencies create Alliance for Drug Endangered Children

Posted: Updated:

Greenville County Sheriff Steve Loftis and other state and community organizations have partnered to create a site for the S.C. Alliance for Drug Endangered Children.

The county's site will help deputies and other law enforcers meet the new S.C. Drug Endangered Children Guidelines.

Loftis said his agency partnered with the University of South Carolina Children's Law Center, SLED, Greenville Police Dept., DSS, Greenville Health System Children's Hospital, The Phoenix Center, The Julie Valentine Center, DHEC, Greenville Coroner's Office, fire departments and EMS to create the alliance.

Loftis said the guidelines require multiple agencies to work together in order protect children removed from drug environments or children who are in danger of physical, mental and emotional abuse.

Loftis, Sen. Mike Fair, Solicitor Walt Wilkins and Dr. Jennifer Hudson with GHS Children's Hospital are scheduled to speak about the new alliance and guidelines Tuesday at 10 a.m. in Greenville County Council chambers on University Ridge.
