Ivey doesn't want her daughter -- or anybody else's child -- going down that path.
"We are trying to make those connections with the community, so that when someone needs help they come to us rather than waiting for us on a run," Decatur Township School Resource Officer Chase Lyday said.

"It is personal," Lyday said. "Almost all of us know someone who has lost their life to an overdose or who is addicted to drugs has ruined their life by drug usage and choices that they have made."
