The Oro Valley Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), SOBER Project, Meth Free Alliance, Oro Valley Optimist Club, Golder Ranch Fire District and Pima County Wastewater invite Oro Valley citizens, businesses, churches and schools to join us and share information regarding drug awareness in our community. Together we can explore possible solutions and preventative measures to make our community safe, healthy and drug free.
