Crime and Drugs

Keeping our streets safe and our communities drug-free has never been more important. Every American has a right to live, work, and raise a family in a safe, crime-free neighborhood. And every child has the right to go to a safe, drug-free school.

I am committed to making our streets and schools as safe as possible, and have taken concrete actions to do so, including:

Leading the fight for an increase in COPS funding for local law enforcement agencies to put more police officers on our streets.

Fighting the emerging threats of methamphetamine labs and OxyContin abuse in our rural communities.

Funding a $1 million statewide DNA initiative to help our state's crime labs process their DNS backlog.

Helping expand the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, which gives local law enforcement more tools for combatting drugs.
