Red Ribbon Week recognition began after the kidnapping, torture and murder of DEA agent Enrique "Kiki" Camarena in 1985. Camarena had been working undercover in Guadalajara, Mexico for over four years. His efforts led to a tip that resulted in the discovery of a multi million dollar narcotics manufacturing operation in Chihuahua, Mexico. It is in memory of him that we have Red Ribbon Week. Join us in spreading the message.
