FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) -- A group is forming in northern Kentucky to fight the increasing use of heroin in the region.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports Boone County leaders met recently to talk about how bad the problem is and begin developing a strategy to address it.
The newspaper reports that the variety of leaders who attended the meeting was indicative of how much heroin has affected the community. The meeting attracted law enforcement, city and county officials, health care professionals, school officials, the coroner and judicial representatives.
Recent statistics show that northern Kentucky is the epicenter of heroin abuse in the state. Data shows that in 2011 the counties of Boone, Kenton and Campbell had 8.4 percent of the state's population but accounted for 60 percent of the state's heroin prosecutions.
