SERVING NEW YORK WITH INTEGRITY & COMMITMENT

Government helps to reduce drug crime

If you live in or around the New York City area, you are well aware that drug crime remains a big problem.

The federal government, as well as state governments, continues to do their part in reducing the rate of drug crimes throughout the country. Even then, they are aware that there is no way of completely eliminating these crimes.

The National Institute of Justice, for example, sponsors research on drugs and alcohol, as it relates to the criminal justice system, as a means of promoting effective law enforcement.

When it comes to prevention and intervention, the National Institute of Justice funds a variety of projects meant to prevent drug crimes. Some of these projects include:

-- HOPE Program Evaluation

-- Drug Courts

-- Panel on Medication Assisted Treatment

-- Evaluating the Decide Your Time Program

With projects like these in place, it is easy to see that the federal government is serious about deterring drug crimes. At the same time, it shows a dedication to helping those who have been arrested for such a crime.

Even with such a dedicated approach, there are times when law enforcement officials make mistakes while arresting a suspect. When this happens, it doesn't matter how much time and money the government has put into prevention and intervention. What does matter is that the convicted party gets a fair shake in court.

Those who are already arrested for drug crimes should become familiar with their rights, especially if they feel they have been treated unfairly. This often begins by speaking with a criminal law attorney.
