More than 50 law enforcement officers took part in Wednesday’s roundup. Assisting detectives from all three UNITE drug task force offices were officers from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Manchester Police Department, Kentucky State Police and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement, which also provided a K-9 unit for the searches.
Members of the Concerned Christians for a Drug Free Clay County UNITE Coalition and Lifeline of Eastern Kentucky, an after-care program based in Manchester, were on hand at the community center to speak with those arrested and offer assistance and support if needed.
Unlike other drug round-ups, Operation Hot Spot seeks first to reclaim drug-invested neighborhoods by eliminating the dealers, then follows up on the high-profile effort with UNITE’s other two equally important components – education and treatment.
Once the initial roundup is over, officers begin placing door hangers on homes and flyers at businesses announcing the time and location for a community meeting where UNITE officials discuss how residents can engage their friends and neighbors to make their community a safe and secure place in which to raise a family.
A community meeting for Horse Creek residents is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15, at the Horse Creek Baptist Church on KY 80. For more information about this meeting contact UNITE at 1-866-OP-UNITE (1-866-678-6483).
Previous Hot Spot enforcement efforts have been conducted in the Verda community in Harlan County, Busy/Yerkes/Willard communities in Perry County, and the Benham/Cumberland/Lynch communities in Harlan County.
