Illegal Drug Threat
In the past decade, there has been significant growth in the illicit trafficking of drugs throughout the United States.  The Houston area continues to be threatened due to the close proximity to the U.S.- Mexico border.  Even with the strong law enforcement presence devoted to combating this threat, the quantity of drugs being transported through the region remains staggering.

About This Site

Due to the growth of drug abuse nationally and as a preventative measure, the Houston HIDTA has created this website, StopDrugs Houston to educate the public about dangerous drug  activity and provide a way for residents to report tips to  provide leads for law enforcement.  This community policing initiative has been designed to help keep our neighborhoods and families safe from illegal drugs and related criminal activity.
