Who We Are


The Crime Prevention Narcotics Drugs Education Center is a 501c (3) non-profit organization, formed in 1968 by Dr. H. L. Bostic out of a concern for the rising tide of alcohol and drug related crime in the local community and through the nation. CPNDEC was incorporated by state of California in 1970 with a wide base of community support encompassing local law enforcement, citizens, businesses, and local churches.  For over 42 years, CPNDEC has kept up the momentum of breaking through the barriers of poverty and violence, and continued to take a leadership role in the fight against crime and violence.
