Informative Seminar Raises More Awareness About Meth

ISP Commander Niki Crawford

Mayor Winnecke’s No Meth Task Force will host a special presentation by the Indiana State Police and Evansville/Vanderburgh County Drug Task Force Meth Suppression Unit to raise awareness about the continuing problem of methamphetamine and to solicit support for proposed legislation making pseudoephedrine a prescription-only drug.

The presentation will be at the C.K. Newsome Community Center, 100 E. Walnut St., on Monday, Oct. 15, at 6:30 p.m.

The presentation will be conducted by ISP Meth Suppression Section Commander Niki Crawford, ISP Sgt. Paul Andry, and Evansville Police Department Det. Brock Hensley. The session will cover the types and cost of supplies, equipment and personal protective gear necessary to safely and properly process a clandestine lab, how a meth lab crime scene is processed, and updates on meth cook processes and pseudoephedrine and chemical reagent smurfing trends. Updates will be provided for states that have legislatively instituted PSE blocking and tracking systems and those that have returned PSE to a prescription-only drug.

Commander Crawford has been with the Indiana State Police for 19 years. She has been assigned to the Meth Suppression Section since 2005 when it was developed and implemented as a full time section of drug investigators within the Criminal Investigation Division. Media interested in a live interview with Commander Crawford during the evening newscasts should contact Ella Johnson-Watson to make arrangements.
