Cole County Officials Looking into Opiate Increases
JEFFERSON CITY - In a joint effort to more closely examine what appears to be an increase in heroin/opiate related overdoses in the Jefferson City/Cole County area, the Jefferson City Police Department and Cole County Sheriff's Department are working together to gather the facts about what the local community can do to combat this trend.
Officials will be working with a number of different agencies and community groups to prepare an awareness campaign that will involve both the general community and area youth. Their intent is to gather hard facts and present those facts in a forum that will serve to educate and inform.
The end result is to enlist the community to assist us in what is most certainly a concern within our community, and to work together to make our community safer.
