Drug needles a problem for police

-A A +A
By Damon Lawrence

Hypodermic needles can make pat downs and searches risky for police officers. Kingston Police Chief Jim Washam said that’s why he advises his officers to look first before they touch anything.

“We encourage them to wear some type of gloves, too,” he said. “Not all do.”

Kingston Police Officer Nathan Wilson reported finding three hypodermic needles during an incident on July 25. Washam said such findings are not uncommon.

“We run across that more and more everyday,” he said.
