(Courtesy CBC)
It's the first time any one can remember the Salmon Arm RCMP holding a meeting where they invited everyone in the community.

Parents, children, seniors and anyone who was interested were invited to learn about the area's illegal drug problem.

Police wanted to teach people about the drug issues, what they are doing about it and what the community can do to help law enforcement officials deal with the problem. 

Daybreak's Leah Shaw was one of the 75 people who showed up.
