Virginia Sheriffs’ Association
The Voice of Virginia’s Sheriffs & Deputies

Opioids are a priority area of focus for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Office for State and Local Law Enforcement, and they believe that the DEA August 2018 Opioid Reports can be of great information for you. The increasing demand for these substances in the United States presents a significant public health risk and negatively impacts officer safety. The DEA shares this information with the Virginia Sheriffs’ Association in hopes to raise awareness across all law enforcement and allow us to better protect ourselves and our communities.
