As the Secretary of the NADDI (National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators) chapter in Louisiana, McDavid knows how crucial it is to take advantage of the types of services NADDI offers. The ZPD recently received a $5,000 grant which will be used on drug awareness, diversion and training programs for parents, officers and kids.
"We'll also be initiating the Pill Box Program which allows people to turn in their unused and expired prescription drugs to us so we can properly dispose of them," McDavid said. "Presciption drug abuse, particularly opiate pain medication, is on the rise at an alarming rate among teens aged 13-17. These kids are going into their parents' medicine cabinet, sneaking pills and becoming addicted."
McDavid said Zachary police officers will also be actively ticketing those who park in handicap spaces without a proper tag. "I receive a lot of calls about that," he said. "We plan to enforce it."
Additionally, there are plans for a women's self-defense class and possibly a course, McDavid said.
The Zachary warrant lists are back and Chief David McDavid says clearing the city’s warrants from the system is another one of his priorities.
“Outstanding warrants are being processed on the first and third Wednesday of every month in Zachary City Court,” McDavid said. “Anyone who has an outstanding warrant, is scheduled to come to court and doesn't attend, they should expect officers to be showing up at their homes or offices that same day, and they will be brought to court to have their warants processed.”
If you think that you may have an outstanding warrant, please contact Zachary City Court at 654-0044 to resolve your warrant issue.
