FAQs

Question:

We have drug houses and dealers in our neighborhood. What can be done about it?

Answer:

Communicate.  Let us know what's going on.  By working with patrol and, some instances, our narcotics unit, deterring or correcting the problem can be accomplished.  There are a couple of ways to let us know either directly or anonymously. 

  • Report drug activity through:
    • Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS(8477).  You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.  
    • The primary Sheriff's Office phone number to speak to a call taker and have a deputy respond at 477-1000.
    • The Narcotics Unit 477-1068
  • Give as much information as possible about the drug activity including:
    • Detailed descriptions of people and cars involved,
    • License tag numbers of involved vehicles,
    • Addresses related to the activity.

Whether the problem is street sales, frequent traffic in and out of a residence at odd hours of the day or you have concerns about a family member or friend, the Sheriff's Office wants to join you in the fight against illegal drug activity.  Contact the Sheriff’s Office crime prevention practitioner in your area at 477-1000 to see how you can get involved in the community policing effort in your neighborhood.
