Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Northern Gila Community County Drug Task Force to first raise awareness, educate and engage the community in understanding the nature and complexity of drug use and abuse within northern Gila County; to work as an adjunct to civil authorities, emergency first responders, health care professionals, schools and other civic organizations in their efforts to deal with the causes and consequences of legal and illegal use and misuse of controlled substances in the northern Gila County area.

 

Who We Are

The Northern Gila County Community Drug Task Force is a group of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds who care about the quality of life in our community.  We recognize that our impact on the problem of drug use and abuse is magnified when the police, the sheriff’s department and other civil authorities are aligned in recognizing the extent of the problem, and to the extent of their charter, work on solutions to the problem.

 

As a Member Our Duties Are

  • Assist the community with age-appropriate drug prevention educational workshops. 
  • Provide up-to-date drug statistic information and trainings. 
  • Recommend local or state solutions and resources for rehab. 
  • Collaborate with local and county law enforcement agencies to develop successful approaches to unlawful drug activities. 
  • Identify local drug dealings and forward them to the Gila County Narcotics Drug Taskforce
