To respond to this continuing problem in our communities, IACP convened a National Drug Symposium in early 2015. Representatives from state, local, and tribal law enforcement; the federal government; the scientific community; and nonprofit organizations met at IACP headquarters to discuss the broad spectrum of contemporary drug issues. Participants discussed the issue of addiction, its effect on communities, and law enforcement’s unique role in responding to addicted individuals. This report summarizes that discussion and highlights the findings from the symposium.
