Red Ribbon Week Reminds Parents to Talk to Your Kids About Drugs 
During the week of October 23 through 31, the Monrovia Police Department will celebrate Red Ribbon Week 2014 by wearing red ribbons on their uniforms. Red Ribbon Week is a national campaign to raise awareness about substance abuse among our youth and our communities. In 1985, DEA Agent Enrique, “Kiki,” Camarena was murdered by a drug cartel. To honor his memory and to show support that we will continue the fight against illegal drugs, Monrovia Police Officers will wear red ribbons as part of our uniform. Monrovia schools have passed out red bracelets to children to encourage kids to support the fight against illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco use.
