Drug and alcohol related crimes are significantly down in Moscow.

Moscow measures crime in 36 categories. 23 of those categories are down
from 2013 to 2016. More importantly, crimes the Latah Recovery Center
likely impacts are down substantially: drug related calls down 28%, alcohol
offenses down 51%, and intoxicated persons down 30%.

In speaking with Moscow Police Chief Fry to determine if there were any
procedural or enforcement changes that might account for these large drops,
he said that first time alcohol possession had changed from a misdemeanor
to an infraction.  No other significant changes on his end.  He believes
the opening of both the Community Hospital Association of Spokane clinic
and Latah Recovery Center around 2013, and the Hope Center's continued
efforts deserve much of the credit.
