Bellingham City Club Program April 23rd
Chronic drug and alcohol abuse are increasingly recognized as major contributing factors to criminal activity in neighborhoods and communities across the nation. Bellingham and Whatcom County are not exceptions.
This is the first of two programs looking into the growing crisis of drug and alcohol addiction and the damage it visits on individuals, their families and communities.
Police Sergeant Keith Johnson of the Bellingham Police Department's Special Investigations Unit will talk about the relationship between drugs and crime levels in Bellingham neighborhoods and how police are responding.
Superior Court Judge Chuck Snyder will describe the role played by Whatcom County's adult and juvenile drug courts for offenders seeking alternatives to the vicious cycle of drug abuse and addiction, criminal activity and jail.
Founded in 1993, the Bellingham City Club is a non-partisan civic organization with over 400 members that fosters dialogue and debate on important issues facing our community.
