Local Police Efforts to Address Drug Problems in Downey, CA

In an effort to curb the abuse of prescription drugs, police in Downey organized regular prescription drug take-back events. This effort was just one of the police department’s crime prevention strategies. The city’s Police Chief regularly sends out officers on bikes to areas of concern to make connections within the community. These programs were initiated to help curb the abuse of prescription drugs in Downey.

L.A. County’s Opioid Prevention Programs

In addition to local efforts, the Department of Public Health has put into place a multifaceted campaign to address the county’s opioid crisis. This includes public messaging campaigns, funding for community coalitions, improving California’s prescription drug monitoring program (CURES), expanding access to Naloxone and establishing family resource centers.

Today, fewer opioid prescriptions are available in Downey and elsewhere in the state, with California physicians boasting the lowest rate of opioid prescriptions written in the country, well under the national average of 51.4 per 100 patients.
