Anti-Drug Patrols

If there is a significant amount of drug or other illegal activity in a neighborhood, people may be discouraged from walking due to personal security concerns. While law enforcement officers are ultimately responsible for detaining drug offenders, community members can provide a valuable service to their neighborhood by starting an anti-drug patrol.

A wide variety of citizen initiatives is possible, with different levels of responsibility and leadership. Effective community anti-drug efforts encourage residents to address drug problems from a perspective broader than that of drugs alone, taking a comprehensive approach to drugs and crime. Police play a particularly pivotal role in community members assault on drugs, as partnerships involving citizens, police, and other agencies provide useful strategies.
