In 1989, Then Governor Bayh established the Governor's Commission for a Drug-Free Indiana within the Criminal Justice Institute. This new commission's purpose was to lead Indiana's fight against alcohol and other drugs.That same year, 10 (now 6) regional offices and 92 Local Coordinating Councils (LCC)were formed. Each county has its own LCC - ours is the Pulaski County Drug Free Council (PCDFC).
To collaboratively network and support a county wide effort to reduce youth and adult substance abuse by resources to further our agenda and providing grant opportunities to qualified applicants who plan to do the same.
The Pulaski County Drug Free Council (PCDFC) acts as Pulaski County's Local Coordinating Council (LCC) of the Governor's Commission for a Drug-Free Indiana. It strives with the concerns of all our population, but especially our youth, in the area of drug, alcohol and tobacco abuses in this community. Reaching the community in a helpful way in that Pulaski County may continue to be a safe and healthy place to live and raise families is its goal. The areas of prevention/education, law enforcement/justice, and treatment are the target areas to receive program funding by the Drug Free selected monies.
The membership of the PCDFC is representative of most LCCs and includes volunteers from a variety of institutions and organizations including education, treatment, social services, and local police. Youth, parents, and private businesses are also represented. New members are welcome.
The meetings of the PCDFC are open to the public. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month at 3:30PM. Meetings are held in the Pulaski County Justice Center In even months, and at the West Central School in odd months. Contact the Coordinator if interested in attending.
