After a strong push from Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18), Maloney joined local law enforcement to announce additional critical federal resources to Dutchess and Putnam Counties for combatting drug trafficking in the Hudson Valley. With the new designation in the NY/NJ High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA), local agencies will benefit from ongoing HIDTA initiatives to reduce drug use and allow for further coordination of drug control efforts between federal, state and local law enforcement officers. In February, Maloney urged the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske to designate Dutchess and Putnam counties as HIDTA, and in July, Maloney wrote in support of the HIDTA application submitted on behalf of Dutchess, Putnam and Rockland counties.
