Salt Lake City has received funding for methamphetamine enforcement three times during the past eight years.  We have witnessed success in fighting meth through multi-agency partnerships, training and a public awareness campaign.  We will continue to foster the multi-agency partnership and joint response approach to the methamphetamine epidemic in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas.  We will link with local, state, and federal initiatives to complement the work of the SL Meth Initiative.  This grant will be awarded in tandem with the $200,000 BJA Meth grant that was recently submitted, to enable us to purchase equipment for a response trailer that will respond to contaminated sites, making the response safer for citizens and City personnel.   It will also provide for the most up-to-date training for personnel working in environments where the risks are in constant flux.
