Town hall meeting on local drug problem to be held

Organizers have set a new date for a community meeting originally scheduled on the eve of Hurricane Michael to discuss drugs in Grady County.
“Drug Crisis in our Community: what actions we can take to combat our problem” forum is now set for Thursday, Nov. 29, 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the VanLandingham Center on North Broad Street.
The evening is sponsored by the Grady County Sheriff’s Office, Drug Free Grady and Fresh Start Global Ministries Church.
Capt. Chris Luckey with the Grady County Sheriff’s Office is the featured speaker and said he will address drug trends in the community and their connection to other crimes. Luckey said he plans to include in the discussion information about National Methamphetamine Awareness Day, which is the following day. Meth is an ongoing problem in Grady County and South Georgia.
Creating an open dialogue with the community is important to combating drug problems, according to the sheriff’s investigator. “I’m real excited about this, getting citizens involved will be our key to success in the future with the problem we’re dealing with. A lot of time, they’re our eyes and ears out there where we can’t be,” Luckey said.
