MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police recognized National Drug-Endangered Children’s Day on Wednesday, which falls during National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Drug endangered children are youth who are at risk of suffering physical or emotional harm as a result of drug activity by their caretakers.

State police are working with other state and local agencies to identify children at risk and ensure services are made available to these families to break the cycle of abuse.

The Connecticut State Police department is the first state police agency in New England to advocate for drug-endangered children at risk. It has also been nationally recognized by the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children.
