Purpose & Function
Sheriff Greg Greg Champagne announces yet another tool in aggressively pursuing dealers and abusers of illegal drugs in St. Charles Parish. With a new 24-hour drug hotline, residents are urged to call to report drug activity. These anonymous tips will be used by deputies to aggressively investigate drug activity.
Experts suggest that as much as 90% of all criminal activity has some correlation to illegal drugs, whether it is directly or indirectly. "Those who abuse drugs often go to extreme levels to obtain them, even if it means robbing or stealing from those who they love," said Champagne.
"The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office is committed to the war against drugs, but we can't do it alone, we need the residents to be our eyes and ears in efforts to rid our neighborhoods from illegal and harmful drugs. Aggressive enforcement, education of children about the harmful effects of illegal drugs, and community involvement are all key elements in battling drug activity," added Sheriff Champagne.
Call the Hotline
To report drug activity, call the drug hotline at (985) 785-4450. All calls will be kept confidential and will be instrumental in making St. Charles Parish a safe community.
