Drug Task Force
Tippecanoe County Drug Task ForceIn an effort to better serve the community in its efforts to stop illicit drug use and distribution in Tippecanoe County the Lafayette Police Department teamed with members of other area police departments and the Tippecanoe County Prosecutors Office in 1996 to form the Tippecanoe County Drug Task Force.
War on DrugsThe war on drugs is one that we cannot afford to lose. Drugs and drug related problems create many kinds of calls for police service. Many studies have shown that higher drug activity creates higher rates of many other kinds of crime as well as the increased need for social services. The men and women of the Lafayette Police Department and the Tippecanoe County Drug Task Force take pride in working with and for the community in our efforts to win that war.
