Safer streets and protected communities, that is what one Wiregrass community says they are striving for.
Each Daleville officer now has a narcotics test kit to carry with them. The kits help assist in drug arrest, they just need a small drug sample to put into one of the kit’s 12 pocket containers.
Each of these use a chemical substance to test for each drug, those chemicals reactants turn a different color depending on the drug. According to officers, this is a more effective way of drug testing.
Officers say the test can test different types of street drugs including cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, heroin and methamphetamines.
The narcotics test kits cost the Daleville Police Department $400.
