Next drug forum at Living By Faith Tuesday 20 June 2017
By Linda Waggener
Columbia and Adair County police and sheriff's departments are asking for greater community involvement to stop illegal drug use and to be proactive in stopping the growth of Heroine addiction. They have, or will be, holding meetings in each area of the county and the next will be at 6pmCT tomorrow, Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at Living by Faith Community Church, 3041 Edmonton Road, Columbia, KY near Gradyville.
Columbia Police Chief Jason Cross said, "Call us. We want the public's involvement. Tips really help. To avoid tying up 911, use this phone number 270-384-4119. Once the call is received officers can do a 'knock and talk' and discover if there's a need for further investigation."
The first of several public drug forums was held March 16, 2017 and had to be moved from the original site at City Hall to the Judicial Center courtroom due to the crowd being larger than expected. Since then two more meetings have been held in southern and northern Adair.
Hepatitis C is spreading as a result of the rapid growth in Heroine use and used needles can be found in all public areas. Since the first drug forum the city and county have approved a needle exchange program for Adair County to help stop the spread of Hep C.
