DU QUOIN - The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, with assistance from Du Quoin Police Chief Steve Ingram and fellow department officers, paid a visit to Du Quoin Elementary School Wednesday to interact with students as part of Red Ribbon Week activities. According to Special Agent Roger Ehler with the DEA, Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States. It began as a tribute to fallen DEA special agent Enrique "Kiki" Camerena, who was killed combating drugs in Mexico in 1985.
