The illicit drug market in the Halton region is unique in comparison to its neighbouring municipalities. There is minimal drug activity that can be witnessed out in the open. Nonetheless, there is a wide variety of illicit drugs available including dangerous drugs such as methamphetamine, crack cocaine, and heroin.
Another unique distinction regarding the Halton drug scene is an influx of mid to high level traffickers. Because the Halton region’s communities are growing so fast, there has been an increase in drug traffickers moving in from other areas. Further, the Halton region tends to be a midway point between the Greater Toronto Area and Southern Ontario.
Don’t be alarmed!
The Halton Regional Police Drug & Morality Unit is aware of the changes in our neighbourhoods and is taking pro-active steps to address these concerns.
