Red RIbbon Week
LONG BEACH, CALIF. USA -- CHP officer Pete Sutherland holds on to Tess, a police dog, as he goes after a fake suspect at Bethany School in Long Beach, Calif. on October 18, 2010. A Helicopter, along with DEA agents, Long Beach police and fire and CHiP, visited the school for Red Ribbon Week. National Red Ribbon Week is October 23 - 31, but with the help of a parent who works for the DEA Bethany School is doing it a week early.
The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA.
