How Can I Help Combat Illegal Drugs?

  • Pay attention to what is occurring in and around your neighborhood.MaijuanaBricks
  • Is there any unusually heavy foot traffic in and out of a house, apartment or parking lot?
  • Drug traffic usually involves stays of short duration, typically a drug deal is conducted in a matter of seconds.
  • Do you notice unusual exchanges between people? Nervous exchanges of small items or money may be indicative of a drug transaction.
  • Are there numerous exchanges taking place through a car window or residence window? Have you noticed regular, quick meetings taking place between the same people at the same location?
