Columbia Police Department will be hosting their fifth drug forum at the Bearwallow United Methodist Church located at 6132 Liberty Road on Thursday July 27 at 6 p.m.
We will continue to highlight and try to spread awareness of our current drug issues we face not only as law enforcement officers but as a community. What are you seeing in your area? What can you do? Why are we doing these forums?
These are just a few of the topics we will discuss along with health related issues, the financial cost of fighting drug trafficking and use to tax payers, the rise in theft related incidents, the rise in violent crime and the impact on families among others.
As we continue to traverse across the city and county we have already received very helpful information and we hope that the participation continues to grow. These are your communities that you live and raise your children in. Help us to keep them safe and drug free. We look forward to seeing you at Bearwallow United Methodist Church on July 27.
