Local Civic Group Preparing for Heroin Problems in Prowers County

Prowers Sheriff Badge


Area medical doctors and professionals, Prowers Medical Group, High Plains Community Health Center, Lamar School District, Prowers County Sheriff’s Office, Lamar Police Department, area treatment facilities and local government want to bring to the attention of local citizens that HEROIN has come to Lamar and Prowers County.  This is a drug that has the potential to destroy lives.  Heroin is a drug that you do not want to try even once.  Heroin is extremely addictive and very difficult if not impossible to “kick the habit”.

We are told that several young men are giving it to teenage victims free of charge at first to get them “hooked” then of course they start charging for the drug.  If you have seen drastic changes in the behavior of a family member check with your medical provider for some guidance, check on the internet for information on heroin, contact your local law enforcement agency.

We plan on conducting educational training for the community on this Heroin problem and hope to eradicate heroin from our community before it gets out of control.

The Lamar Police Department has set up a “Tips Line” to receive information on illegal drug and crimes in the area.  It will be anonymous and go directly to a voice mail system.  Information will be forwarded to the law enforcement agency having jurisdiction.

The telephone number to the “Tips Line” is 336-1435.
