We are all well aware that there is a direct correlation between drugs and violent crime in our community. We also know that criminals do more than destroy lives, they also steal the sense of safety and well-being in our community. With the goal of combating this problem community leaders and law enforcement agencies in Livingston and Washtenaw Counties joined together to establish the Livingston and Washtenaw Narcotics Enforcement Team (LAWNET). LAWNET is a multi-jurisdictional team with one common goal in mind, removing drug dealers from our community’s streets and neighborhoods so you can live your life with a sense of peace and tranquility.

The concept of LAWNET is based on the simple premise that no one agency has the ability or resources to respond single-handedly to the drug problems in our area. Therefore, we had to look at combining our talent and resources into a strong specialized drug enforcement team, aimed specifically at removing drug criminals from our streets. The Ypsilanti Police Department is a part of this team.  If you have any information that you wish to bring to the attention of the LAWNET Team, they can be reached at the telephone number below.
