ROME - Raven Fallon, 8, performs a railslide during the second annual Combat Skate Jam hosted by the New York National Guard Counterdrug Task Force and the Rome Weed and Seed at the Rome armory February 22, 2008. The event was free to kids of all ages to learn about the dangers of drugs and compete in a skate board competition for prizes.
The New York National Guard Counterdrug Task Force works with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in an effort to combat drugs in New York State.
As part of the support to these agencies, the Counterdrug Task Force receives a share of forfeited monies from apprehended drug dealers to be used for community activities. Part of the seizure money was used to purchase a mobile skate park that was used during the skate jam and can be transported to communities across the state throughout the year.
