Hidden in Plain Sight, a program initiated in Warren County by the Coalition for Healthy and Safe Communities and then in association with United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Special Agent Timothy McMahon of the NJ DEA office, was recently highlighted on NBC-TV news in New York.
The Coalition, a program of the Family Guidance Center of Warren County, has been offering the program, which originated in Copley, Ohio, to the community and local schools for over a year. McMahon was asked to be the law enforcement component of the program with the Coalition and liked it so much that he wrote a proposal to the NJ DEA to take it statewide and was approved to do so. He has done over 40 Hidden in Plain Sights this year throughout New Jersey.
In recognition of his work with Hidden in Plain Sight, Agent McMahon will be a special guest at the Coalition’s 4th Annual Coalition For Healthy and Safe Communities Recognition Luncheon on Jan. 17 at the Inn at Millrace Pond in Hope.
