Re:       Announcements of Take Back North Carolina Initiative

RALEIGH – The United States Attorney’s Office announces three press conferences to discuss the beginning of a new initiative to combat violent and drug crime in the Eastern District of North Carolina.  This initiative will bring the full weight and resources of the federal court system in the fight against crime in those counties in partnership with District Attorneys’ Offices and federal, state, and local law enforcement.  The initiative will also focus on the alarming level of opioid use and the deaths associated with it. 

The first news conference in Elizabeth City will focus on, Chowan, Perquimans, Pasquotank, Camden, Currituck, Gates and Dare Counties.

The second news conference in Ahoskie will focus on Bertie, Halifax, Hertford and Northampton Counties.

The third news conference will focus on Granville, Vance, Warren, and Franklin Counties.

In addition to United States Attorney Robert J. Higdon, Jr. we anticipate members from the District Attorney’s Office and local, state, and federal law enforcement to be present at each event.
