The Alliance Police Department will host meetings with members of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Nebraska State Patrol (NSP), U.S. Attorney's Office (USAO) for the District of Nebraska and Nebraska Attorney General's Office (AG), on Wednesday, March 9. The meeting will discuss the increased amounts of methamphetamine seen throughout the state.
This meeting is an extension of the Drug Forum held in Kearney earlier this year. Together, the DEA, FBI, USAO, AG and NSP are working with local and tribal law enforcement agencies across Nebraska to exchange ideas and information on how best to push back against the increasing threat that methamphetamine poses to our communities.
In addition to the law enforcement meetings, NSP and FBI will be speaking with students at Alliance Middle School beginning at 9:15 a.m.
They will be talking with students about drug trends and providing awareness of what Law Enforcement Agencies are seeing across the state.
