FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

The Lauderdale County Drug Task Force held training this week for Florence officers.

Drug agents shared information about what they're seeing on the streets, tips on what to look out for and ways to help keep drugs out of the area.

"It's extremely important; we have numerous examples in the past where somebody initially saw one red flag or say one piece of paraphernalia," said Task Force Agent Tim Glover. "They take that paraphernalia and look for the drugs. It eventually leads to more arrests and a bigger investigation, so it's vitally important."

Agents said they could not comment specifically on an increased heroin use in the area due to the ongoing investigation.
