Dave Parvin, Drug Squad Officer

A former Drug Squad Officer- Dave has seen the damage and destruction first hand that  ‘drugs’ can bring to those who choose to have a life that involves the use of these substances and as such is passionate about raising the awareness of the ‘potential risks and dangers’ associated with this life style. Since leaving the police Dave over the last 17 years has delivered hundreds of Drug Awareness Sessions to Schools and Colleges all over the country engaging with all parties (Students/Staff and Parental Sessions) to ensure his key message about raising the awareness of the real risks and dangers associated with many substances young people in particular are likely to come into contact with. He does not preach and delivers his presentations in a ‘non judgemental manner’ in his own ‘unique style’, ensuring that his audiences engage with him from the very minute he starts to speak. He also has strong links with NAMSS (National Association for Managers of Student Services) and for the BSA (Boarding School Association) delivering bespoke Drug Awareness Training events for their staff (including work overseas with international schools).
