‘Not in my neighborhood’: Leaders launch anti-heroin campaign

Sheriff to discuss heroin epidemic (VIDEO)

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Law enforcement officials are launching a new campaign called the "Not in My Neighborhood" initiative.

You will start to see signs, bumper stickers, of the campaign in area businesses, hospitals, and police stations that encourage the public to call with any tips about drug trafficking and dealers.

The "Not in My Neighborhood" initiative is a collaboration across the entire region.

The number to call is 513-352-DOPE or 513-946-4411. You can leave a tip anonymously.

Officials say tips are the catalyst to making arrests and to stop the heroin epidemic in the Tri-State.

The $200,000 billboard campaign that was launched last year has been successful in bringing in tips, according to officers.

Law enforcement will also be handing out "revive cards" to those who overdose and are revived with Narcan.

They say the cards will have drug help lines for them to use.

Police say Narcan was used 83 times in the last year.

There will forums for the public to learn more about drug addiction and the heroin epidemic.

The newest forum will be held at UC's Blue Ash campus March 1 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. in Muntz Auditorium Room 119. It will be open to the public.
