Creating Safe Neighborhoods, Safe Streets, Safe Schools, [and] Safe Workplaces: Using Illinois' Drug Laws.
Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, Chicago.
This handbook provides renters, homeowners, teachers, parents, and workers with tools for ridding their communities of illegal drugs. The booklet describes relevant anti-drug laws, and provides examples of how they are being used successfully in one state. The case studies cited almost always involve individuals and community groups working together with local law enforcement officials and prosecutors. The book is divided into four major sections: (1) Safe Neighborhoods; (2) Safe Streets; (3) Safe Schools; and (4) Safe Workplaces. Each section briefly outlines the extent of the problem, lists strategies for drug trafficking prevention, and offers tips for safely intervening with drug activities. Each major section of the handbook concludes with one or two resource numbers. Also included is a list of resources that can be contacted for treatment assistance by those having a problem with illegal drugs. (RJM)
