Community intel key for law enforcement in Hazard
Police in Hazard said community meetings and input from neighbors have led to several drug arrests. They recently put out word that they would be turning to the community for help in finding tips on crime in the area. Just a couple weeks later, the strategy is paying big dividends: they obtained a search warrant to look through a room at the Daniel Boone Motor Inn off Highway 15. Deputy Chief Joe Engle of the Hazard Police Department and Chief Minor Allen said they recovered narcotics and several other items. They have not released any information on any arrests.
