Dothan PD Cracking Down on Gun Violence

During the last two weeks the Dothan Police Department have been successful in recovering numerous firearms and illegal narcotics. This was a team effort from the entire department and was accomplished through sectored patrol techniques and several search warrants.

Thirty-six firearms, over one kilogram of crystal methamphetamine, one pound of synthetic cannabinoid, several hundred ecstasy pills, crack cocaine, cocaine, marijuana, and approximately $30,000 have been seized. All these items are derived from illegal activity.

The Dothan Police Department will strive to protect the citizens of our community while working with our partners to include the Houston County District Attorney’s Office and Federal Law Enforcement agencies.

With the support of our mayor, commission, and city manager we are utilizing the latest technology to reduce violent crime in our city. Many new strategies are in place and being worked on for the future. Dothan will not give in to the criminal element and serve notice that violent criminals will be targeted for the foreseeable future.
