Jack Everson says the police department will be stepping up its efforts to stop drug activity.
Drug dealers have been warned by Chillicothe Mayor Jack Everson: "We're going to go after the drug flow into the city, hot and heavy; that's been a priority of mine."
Mayor Everson said that he has discussed the drug situation with Police Chief Moore and that the police department is on-board and ready to increase the efforts. Everson also doesn't believe the increased efforts will have to over-burden the police department.
He said that a "dent" needs to be made in the city's drug traffic through the seizure of materials, property, and money that are involved in illegal activity.
