LAPORTE | The LaPorte County Metro Operations Unit in conjunction with the LaPorte City Police Department and the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office has been working tirelessly in the fight against illegal drugs in our Community. Over the last two weeks, officers from these units have made seven arrests for Heroin related offenses and more arrests are expected shortly. Their hard work along with tips from the community is paramount in getting a handle on the drug issues we face.

Without these agencies working as team and fighting these problems 24/7 we would certainly be facing far more problems in our community. Our department is 100% dedicated to the fight against illegal drugs and we vow to continue to aggressively fight this problem to help protect the citizens of our town!

We take every tip we get and see it all the way to the end. When a tip is made sometimes it takes several months of investigation before an arrest can be made. Our investigators work these cases every day and they want to make sure that they get everyone who may be involved in these cases identified so that we can know all the players involved.

We can see a single tip turn into the arrests of several dealers, which is why it is so important that we maintain a good relationship with our citizens.

We always need the eyes of the public letting us know when they witness or suspect any type of illegal activity. Please use any of the various ways of getting tips to us by calling 362-9446, using our website www.lpcitypd.com, visiting our facebook page, all of which can be done anonymously.
