Cleveland Designated a DEA 360 City

The agency is offering additional resources focused on preventing drug abuse with a particular emphasis on education about the dangers of opioids. The effort includes a website, a public awareness campaign, after-school activities, and free presentations to schools and workplaces.

The Drug Enforcement Administration has selected Cleveland as a DEA 360 city, which means it is offering additional resources focused on preventing drug abuse with a particular emphasis on education about the dangers of opioids. The effort includes a website, a public awareness campaign, after-school activities, and free presentations to schools and workplaces.

<><>The website, www.wakeup-cleveland.com, went live earlier this month.

DEA's announcement said the designation comes as Ohio continues to struggle with the opioid epidemic. Ohio had the second-highest fatal overdose rate in the country and the fourth-highest number of fatal overdoses in 2017, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The DEA 360 effort is in addition to DEA's traditional roles of investigating large-scale drug trafficking and the diversion of painkillers and other prescription medication.

"Cleveland's DEA 360 program will look to enhance existing efforts already underway, such as the U.S. attorney's Heroin and Opioid Task Force and the Cuyahoga County Opioid Task Force, among others," said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Keith Martin of the Cleveland District Office.
