I'm interested in any information, tactics, contacts, etc. on how to 
most effectively and efficiently organize a smallish, urban 
neighborhood to remove drug-related activity.   

We're in Asheville, NC and don't get much response from the local 
police other than "We're doing all we can."  It's a low income, 
predominately African-American neighborhood that has seen this 
problem for nearly 12 years.  It has recently begun to escalate into 
violence and last week someone was shot.  

Thank you for all of your help!

In truth.
