San Bernardino, tucked in the Inland Empire valley, is a city with a vibrant history. San Bernardino has a touch of Native American, Spanish, Mexican and Mormon influence that creates a diverse sense of community. Sitting between the San Bernardino Mountains and desert, it is strategically placed near Palm Springs, San Diego and Los Angeles.
San Bernardino has forty parks, community centers and local businesses that bring the community together. However, beneath the west coast lifestyle lie drug crimes that can easily disrupt this high quality of life.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff Department’s Narcotic Division is one of the largest in the region. Built with special training, the Narcotic Division has two investigation teams and covers the streets of the Inland Empire valley, and nearby deserts and mountains. They are equipped to do long-term investigation, as well as routinely checking shipping businesses.
In 2012, the Sheriff Department reported 742 drug crime arrests. The most common drugs that were confiscated were cocaine, synthetic narcotics and methadone.
In addition, 42 percent of 11th grade San Bernardino students have reported using alcohol or drugs within the 30 days of taking the “San Bernardino County: Community Vital Signs” survey.
