(WLBT) - The Wiggins Police Department is taking a more aggressive step to keep drugs off the streets.
The department is setting up a narcotics task force with the Stone County Sheriff's Department to deter crime. A tip line was also set up because Wiggins Police Chief Matt Barnett says drugs don't stop at the city or county line.
"All information is confidential the citizens live here this is there county if they can give us the information we'll be glad to clean it up," said Wiggins Police Chief Matt Barnett.
If you are in the area and would like to report a crime, you can call the tip line at 601-528-9500.
