Looks can be deceiving – that’s the message behind a unique traveling exhibit and program
created by the Bath and Copley Township, Ohio Police Departments. The departments constructed what appears to be at first glance the bedroom of an average teenager. But amidst the clutter of clothing scattered on the floor, school supplies on a desk and personal care products on a vanity are more than 150 items that can actually be signals that a young person could be involved in risky, dangerous and even illegal activity such as substance abuse, underage drinking, eating disorders, sexual activity and more.

On March 9, 2017 “Hidden in Plain Sight” will be held in the Salem High School auditorium,
located at 1200 E. 6th St., Salem, OH 44460. The audience will have a chance to explore
the display beginning at 6pm. At 6:30 pm experts from the law enforcement community will
show everyone how many of the objects that we take for granted in the display are signs that a
teenager may be involved with risky behaviors.

There is no cost to attend this program; however, due to the information being presented attendance is limited to adults only. This event is sponsored by Salem City Schools, Salem Police Department, and Salem Public Library.
