The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office created Operation: Street Smart in July 2002 as a way to take community oriented policing to a new level.  Street Smart is a collaborative effort between the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which is the Sheriff’s Office undercover narcotics branch.  To date, Operation Street Smart has been presented over 1,500 times to over 120,000 people throughout Ohio and the United States. The program has received the F.B.I. Director’s Community Leadership Award.

The goal of Street Smart is to provide current and up-to-date narcotics information on trends, terminology, paraphernalia, and physiological effects to those individuals who deal with today’s youth on a daily basis. 

This program is presented by two Franklin County
Sheriff’s Office Undercover Detectives who
possess over thirty-five years of combined
narcotics experience.

ONE-DAY Curriculum

Examples of current designer street drugs such as XTC, AMT, 5-Meo-DMT, LSD, GHB, 1-4 Butanediol, Ketamine, and Khat will be presented.  Franklin County Sheriff Deputies will escort the examples throughout the audience for hands on effect.

Current drug paraphernalia examples will be available to depict the ease in camouflaging drug use from adults.  A strong emphasis is placed on the physiological effects of the drugs and indicators to look for.  So-called “traditional” drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, and methamphetamine are also covered extensively as teenagers still heavily abuse these drugs.

A portion of the program also deals with prescription medications, including DXM, due to the easy accessibility in most households. The entire presentation is back dropped by a PowerPoint slide show depicting additional examples of the drugs being shown.
