Signs of Drug Activity
The Battle Against Drugs
Like all U.S. cities, Danville faces a growing battle against drugs. The police can't solve this problem alone. Success requires community involvement. It is important that you know what an investigation requires and how you can help. It's often hard to be certain what you are seeing involves drugs, but some patterns may indicate drug activity:
  • An unusually large amount of traffic coming to the building - in cars, taxis, or walking - often at strange hours. Visitors may sometimes pound on doors or shout to be let in. This traffic is usually quick with people staying only a short time. Sometimes they don't go in at all; instead, someone comes out to meet them.
  • Finding drugs or drug paraphernalia (syringes, pipes, etc.) in the area.
  • Repeated, observable exchanges of items, especially where money is visible.
  • Offers to sell you drugs, or conversations about drugs that you overhear.
  • Noxious odors from or around the buildings, such as "musty" smells.
  • Buildings where extreme security measures seem to be taken.
  • Buildings where no owner or primary renter is apparent, and no home activities, yard work, painting / maintenance, etc., seem to go on.
  • Many communities have unpopular residents. But obnoxious or peculiar behavior, or a different lifestyle, racial or ethnic background, or economic level doesn't necessarily mean the person is a drug dealer.

How to Report Drug Activity
Don't assume the police already know, or that a neighbor will call. Don't assume one report is all that is needed. If the activity keeps on occurring, keep on reporting it. If the pattern changes, report that change. All neighbors affected by the drug activity are encouraged to report. For more information, please view the following:
