“I could not be more proud of the previous and continued work product produced by the members of the La Porte County Drug Task Force. This unit continues to be dedicated to eradicating illegal drugs not only in Michigan City, but throughout La Porte County. The investigations conducted by LCDTF have undoubtedly made La Porte County a safer place for its amazing residents," Michigan City Police Chief Dion T. Campbell said.
“The continued success of the La Porte County Drug Task Force is a direct result of the positive working relationship the unit has with its prosecutor’s office and court system. If it were not for this positive working relationship, the detectives within the drug task force would not be able to efficiently and effectively investigate these complex drug trafficking investigations,” said Lt. Tim Richardson, Commander of the La Porte County Drug Task Force.
