Those who view the map can observe DTF cases across the county. It is possible to view the county as a whole, or zoom in to a specific neighborhood.

“I am proud of the work done by the Drug Task Force in arresting dealers and getting drugs and weapons off our streets,” said Sheriff Tim Donnellon. “I believe this information is useful for citizens to be aware of drug crimes going on in their neighborhood.”
