SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A new tip hotline aimed at fighting drug trafficking in Santa Fe is now up and running.

Santa Fe police and other officials launched his week a 24/7 drug tip hotline authorities hope will help reduce heroin in the region.

The Regional Emergency Communication Center will handle incoming calls and the hotline will carry a distinctive ring so police will know about an incoming drug tip.

Officials say an officer will be dispatched to the reported location immediately depending on the activity. Tips will also be forwarded to the department’s investigations unit and examined to help build bigger cases.
