Middletown cops make more arrests and respond to more calls than most towns in the county. They don't arrest enough drug dealers to satisfy the public? But.you know where they're being sold to and from? Maybe. The community could .help the Law by reporting the activity. Criminals hide from police officers. But the civilians know what looks wrong and if they have time to complain on this nonsense thread they could take time to make an anonymous tip to report the aforementioned illicit activity. Or just keep crying about it."all that evil needs to succeed, is for good men to.do.nothing". #justsaying

The town and officers are doing everything they can to keep up with this ever growing problem. Middletown has one of the largest drug detective teams not only helping our town, but the state as well. All the towns surrounding middletown all work together to combat this issue. The police need more probable cause to act on those who are selling and distributing. That probable cause is brought on by the people speaking up about what they see. My suggestion is if you see it, report it. If you see it again, report it. Something will get done.
