As chairman of the Regional Council of Elected Officials, Westfield Mayor Andy Cook supports Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and his crusade to tackle heroin use through awareness and prevention.
“I fully support the increased efforts of the IMPD and Mayor Ballard’s administration to combat this alarming upward trend in heroin use,” Cook stated. “Marion County is not alone. I believe in conquering a problem is best solved when pulling community resources together across Central Indiana.”
Ballard said the Metro Drug Task Force is on pace to seize three times the amount of heroin this year compared to 2013. Westfield is not immune to this problem. Cook said he feels strongly that communities should pull their resources together to help spread more awareness throughout Central Indiana.
