You may be living near a meth lab if you live in New Hope, TN. Do you often step outside or drive with the window down to find a horrid odor of a chemical nature and then your eyes, nose, throat and mouth start to burn and itch? Then the over the next 12 hours its like you caught a cold. Do you have this happen at regular daily or weekly intervals. See what I say. If you live near 1900 hwy 156 or Pine Grove Road or any part of Long Island Rd you are in danger. Are your kids sick? How about your grandkids? There are kids there and they could be taking it to school passing it on to them. Check the stats about the neighbors to meth labs. Be a neighborhood watcher. Call and report it, but not to the New Hope PD.

You may be right, but it's also possible that you are smelling the paper mill in Stevenson.

The paper plant smells very different from meth and the paper mill doesn't burn pinto beans to cover its smell.

New Hope PD???
Well if the Police "force", if you can call it that, would actually be ON PATROL and not sitting at the SPPD or at the Gun Shop then yeah... And the Part-Time cop is a friggin' joke himself. They should just turn it all over to the county.

Not sure what the real problem is as far as law enforcement goes. Meth labs are really every where over here. So many neighbors are unusually sick. These people don't have the flu or a cold. I really don't understand why the EPA don't get into this nationwide instead of worrying about how hay is stored: look it up. If this cold medicine would just be placed on prescription again it would really slow up production and provide a national database for tracking. In the meantime, police are at a loss unless the neighborhood watch goes back into play. The police should look into those who have no job but have within the last few weeks done a lot better than before the breakins started. Just being on patrol and being seen helps. A couple of the labs have started producing after dark when the temps start dropping and fewer people out and police are on patrol. My advice to the police: drive into the trailer parks listed in the other forum here and do it between 8pm and 5am. Who has the front door open when the temps are in the 20's and 30's, really?

There is NOT a pro-active approach to busting labs, or even law enforcement in the majority of this county's PD's. They do enough to keep the image up. There are some good officers in this county, but most are jokes that are just collecting a paycheck or getting their rocks off by the limitted authority that the politicians and "upstanding members" of the community allow them to use.

Then what do we do? I would hope people would use this forum to tell others about the meth labs(street names) complete with car descriptions/tag numbers of those frequenting these places, kind of a web based neighborhood watch. I think we have to take a proactive approach, help each other. I think the local PD are monitoring this site and this may help them do the right thing.

No, they still have Constables, for now. They were thinking of doing away with them but never really did get to it.

@Corey, dang, taking that a little personal aren't you? Harsh language and demmanding someone does not speak their mind... WOW, so tough... I know I'm scared, and I also know that enough junk floats through New Hope, the trailer park included little man, that it's very possible that there is.

As for what people concerned about this CAN do if the "locals" wont do their job... Get in touch with the Drug Task Force agents covering this county, not the local PD part-timers, but the federal agents assigned to this district. You can do so by going to the District Attourneys office in Jasper.

I myself think that the New Hope Police is totally up to par considering the facts that they dont pay well and over work their resources they do have. Dont get mad at the cops people. Your lucky to even have a officer asigned to that area. All the other small comunitys have to rely on the county force souly, and you get to have both. You also have to remember that the police have to have probable cause and a convincing statement and or evidence in order to get a warrant, and by the time it finally gets drafted and signed the cook may be over and all the evidence gone. They cant just bust up in someones house just because they have a feeling or because a doors open when it is 30 degrees. As far as the New Hope PD being favoritive with family, I dont buy it. I have known John for a very long time and he would haul his brother in if he was cooking meth. I will even go so far as to say he is the most far and trust worthy officer that I know. He still pulled me over for speeding even though I am a regular at the gun store and it could of costed him alot of bussiness. Try telling him or the county or ever the feds what you have noticed or know and give them a chance to do their jobs. Although I will say with getting the feds involved you may get more than you barganed for. You may even end up being the one searched and hastled due to some protocall.

I have heard so many people threaten to call the Feds just cause they were n town at one point, I hope the Feds do turn on the people that calls them n to start with ! Serve them right cause the Feds have authority to walk on who Evers door step they want to with or with reason

Most people think that unless they live near a meth lab or have a relative on the stuff then it does not touch their lives. That just isn’t true. Hundreds of thousands of state dollars are used each year to fund services to shut down labs and then house prisoners in the states of Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama included in these services are Meth task force(website, employees and equipment), Computer portals that the buyers have to sign every time they buy a pack of pseudoephedrine containing more than 2 pills, Stakeout over time, Court costs, Lab clean ups, and Health care (usually provided through the state).

Meth use causes the user to have hallucinations and extreme paranoia that has led up to many murders, suicides, child abuse an other violent crimes. It is extimated that each meth cook teaches about 10 people a year how to cook the stuff. The process of “cooking” meth produces about 5 pounds of waste for every 1 pound of ready to sell meth. This stuff is not biodegradable and most of it is toxic or carcinogenic. Where it is dumped it leaks into the ground and is there for ever. One source stated that meth costs the taxpayers about $500 every second, nationwide. Some states have made items containing ephedra and pseudoephedrine available by prescription only and have seen a dramatic drop in crimes of all types resulting in less cost to the citizens in those states.

According to Phil Hopkins, Nashville, TN

The time has come to bother, harangue, harass, and otherwise flood the offices of your legislators with the message that Tennessee should make pseudoephedrine a prescription only drug. Consider Oregon’s prescription only law: In 2008 they had 21 lab seizures and for 2009 the total was ten, a far cry from Tennessee’s 831 and 1,190. Tennessee had triple the lab seizures for one month than Oregon had in all of 2008.
