Police department launches new inititative

The Hazard Police Department is trying to combat crime by using what they call "community-oriented policing."

Officers spoke to people in Lothair about the importance of working together to solve the drug problem.

“Can Minor Allen fix the drug problem? No I cannot. But can I help with some of the problems you're having over drugs? Yes I can, but I can't do that by myself,” Hazard Police Chief Minor Allen said.

Chief Allen says he wants to appoint a public safety committee that holds monthly meetings.

Police also plan to put drop boxes around town so that people can anonymously report drug activity.
