Operation Exile

I attended a meeting with police leaders, county attorneys and the U.S. Attorney in Minneapolis today about our state-wide heroin problems and heroin dealer round up (dubbed Operation Exile). The heroin problem has exploded and in a high percentage of cases it is young adults who begin with prescription opiate abuse. 

Duluth PD has been working non-stop to bring those profiting from the sale of heroin to justice. A good portion of the total number of state-wide arrests in this round up were made by the hard working officers at DPD.
