Spokane Fentanyl Overdose Epidemic
Operation Engage is a community alliance working with DEA, FBI, US Department of Justice, local Law Enforcement and community members to bring awareness to the growing fentanyl crisis in Spokane County.
Did you know that in Spokane County:
- Fentanyl seized locally by the DEA increased by 1098% in the past year. That’s not a typo. Over one thousand percent
- The amount of fentanyl seized here in the past 12 months is enough to kill every man, woman and child in all of the United States. This number only represents what was taken off our streets NOT the fentanyl that made it into our community
- Fentanyl related overdoses increased by 186%
- Drugs, including deadly Fentanyl, are being sold via social media platforms using emojis.
Law Enforcement is working to reduce the supply of this deadly poison to our friends, families and neighbors. Spokane is working to reduce the demand in our community. Both efforts are increasing significantly in 2022. Do your part. Help get the fentanyl message out . . . One Pill Can Kill!
Counterfeit Fentanyl Pills Can Kill
Counterfeit pills are easy to purchase, widely available, often contain fentanyl or methamphetamine, and can be deadly.
