The Gatlinburg Police and Fire Departments are partnering with the Tennessee Dangerous Drugs Task Force to present a workshop on how to protect private and rental properties from becoming hazardous drug labs. Topics that will be covered include; how to identify a meth lab operation, the process for the breakdown and destruction of clandestine labs and the decontamination process. Trained personnel will be on location to answer questions.
Tennessee Dangerous Drugs Task Force maintains a searchable database of meth lab locations. Persons convicted of drug offenses are now entered into the Drug Offender Registry Database.
The training is open to the public. It is highly recommended that anyone with vacant properties or rental properties attend this informational meeting and demonstration. The workshop will be held 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at the Gatlinburg Public Safety Training Facility in the Gatlinburg Police Department parking lot at 1230 East Parkway.
