Leaders from Boone, Kenton and Campbell
counties are getting together to discuss northern Kentucky's growing heroin
60 percent of Kentucky's heroin prosecutions in

the state's population. Judge executives from each county are meeting on
Thursday with law enforcement officials to discuss the growing issue.
The following statistics break down the heroin
problem in the area:
-Heroin deaths in northern Ky. have doubled
between 2010 and 2012.
-Babies treated for drug withdrawal has
doubled from 2011 to 2012.
-Rates of acute infections of Hepatitis C in
northern Ky. are 24 times the national rate.
-Overdose cases at St. Elizabeth hospitals
have increased by 77 percent in 2012. That number nearly doubled in 2012.
The public is invited to the Judge Executive's
meeting Thursday at 6:45 p.m. at the Kenton County golf course.
