Sheriff Attributes Lower Crime Rate To Drug Task Force Efforts


A crackdown on drugs goes hand-in-hand with a dropoff in crime in portions of Sangamon County.

 

New crime stats for unincorporated Sangamon County show reductions in all major categories, including steep reductions in the number of burglaries and thefts.

 

The sheriff’s department attributes the decrease to the reactivation of the DIRT team and its efforts to clamp down on the local drug trade.

 

Officials say many of the property crimes in the county are linked to drug activity.
