Mobile Trailer Shows Warning Signs, Hiding Spots for Opioid Addiction

The Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) introduced the Community Opioid Prevention Education (COPE) trailer Monday following a press conference. 

The mobile trailer is made to look like a bedroom and bathroom on the inside. Throughout the COPE trailer are warning signs of opioid addiction, like paraphernalia and makeshift hiding spots for substances.  

Capt. Dave McBain, director of the MCPD traffic division, said the purpose of the trailer is to teach people what to look for so they can help loved ones struggling with addiction.
