The National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (National DEC) would like to thank the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) in the U.S. Department of Justice for being a key partner. The DEC mission would not have advanced as far without their partnership. 

We would also like to thank the Bureau of Justice Assistance for their significant support of our work and assistance with the development of resources.  Support from the Office for Victims of Crime allowed National DEC to create an online resource center with publications, MOU’s, protocols, webinars, and other resources.  We greatly appreciate the support from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).  ONDCP has raised awareness for DEC efforts nationwide. 


We are also grateful to National DEC’s network of local, state, and tribal DEC alliances for their ongoing efforts to implement the collaborative DEC approach and to put the protocols, tools, and other resources of our network to daily use on behalf of drug endangered children.   We also benefit greatly from the expertise of the experienced practitioners in our national network in helping develop additional resources and promising practices.  The work of National DEC and our success in moving the DEC mission forward would not be possible without the persistence and hard work of our national network of practitioners, DEC leaders, and DEC Alliances.
