Resources fROM law enforcement

Since Crawford: 20/20 Vision began implementing strategies to make Crawford County a better place to live and work, Crawford County law enforcement has been right there with us, trying to make our community a safer place to live and work! From initiatives like "What to Watch For" and anonymous TIPS lines to diligently following leads that result in few drugs and dealers on the streets, to putting more programming and education in local businesses and schools, our officers are "all-in!"

More accountability

Since Crawford County Municipal Court Judge Sean Leuthold took over in March 2015, there have been some significant changes to the drug court system, and other law enforcement officials have gotten tougher on drug-related crime countywide. He believes in the three I's: In recovery, In treatment or Incarcerated.



 Public Safety on the Rise

Crawford County law enforcement agree that it is never too soon to talk to your kids about the dangers of drugs. More programming is being planned to get middle and high school students to know that law enforcement takes this issue seriously, but is also there to protect and serve kids and their families. Examples in Crawford County include bringing back Safety Town, to participating in DARE, Teen Institute, and putting more officers in the schools to build relationships.
