Lincoln County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Curtis Landers says in the face of what appears to be a set back for what remains of the Lincoln Interagency Narcotics Team (LINT), the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is preparing to step into the breach with three detectives that will soon be working in ways similar to LINT.

Landers says two crime statistics in Lincoln County are high and are related to drug trafficking – crimes against property and crimes against persons. He said focusing on drug activity is a strategy for going after both.

Landers says he expects to have three Sheriff’s detectives on the street by mid-summer and expects their efforts to dovetail, where possible, with Lincoln City, Newport and Toledo Police Departments.

Landers says when LINT was formed 24 years ago, things were very different back then compared to today. Today’s instant communications, the ability to share information electronically – even to be in the same room at the same time via secure video lines are common tools that can greatly improve efficiency among investigators. He said they’re confident the law enforcement community throughout Lincoln County can still collaborate very effectively to fight drugs.
