Two workshops for parents of teens will be held this month by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s “J-Team” to educate parents about the dangers and misconceptions associated with drugs and social media, officials announced this week.

The first workshop, scheduled April 16, will educate parents on current trends and behaviors associated with drugs, focusing on where teens get drugs, where they use them, and how they hide drugs from family members and school officials, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Station.

Detective Bill Velek of the Juvenile Intervention Team will present the event, titled “What You Don’t Know: Teens, Drugs and the Consequences,” from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Santa Clarita City Hall.

On April 23, Deputy Josh Dublin will discuss social media risks with a workshop titled “Teens Cell Phones, Sexting and Social Media.”

Also running from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the interactive presentation will focus on what parents should know when it comes to technology and provide tips on communicating with their teens.

Both events are scheduled in the Council Chambers of Santa Clarita City Hall, 23920 Valencia Blvd.
