PACT* Priorities for January and February 2014:

Our PACT priority for this period relates to drug misuse in the Alva and Menstrie areas.
Drug misuse has a detrimental effect on the communities in which we live and work. David and I are interested in obtaining information relating to drugs misuse and drug dealing. We will then use this information to obtain drugs warrants and target the dealers blighting the community. We can be contacted in confidence via the non-emergency telephone number of 101.
