Judiciary Committee Member Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), a former prosecutor, will also attend.Leahy chairs the Senate panel, and noticed the hearing on Effective Community Efforts to Counter Drug-Related Crime in Rural America on Friday. Leahy has been a long-time leader in Congress on efforts to assist state and local law enforcement, as well as community-based efforts to prevent and address crime. This is the third in a series of hearings on drug crime that Leahy has brought to Vermont. He has twice brought the Judiciary Committee to Vermont to hear firsthand about the successful efforts communities have made to address drug-related crime. The hearings, which were held in Rutland and St. Albans, helped to strengthen community resolve to address the problem of drug-related crime, and highlighted successful community-wide efforts to take on this difficult issue. In Vermont, we have felt the presence of drug abuse and drug-related crimes in our communities. The myth persists that these are only big-city problems, but rural America is also coping with these issues, said Leahy. As we learned in Rutland and St. Albans, communities are developing innovative and effective ways to combat crime, and communities across the country can learn from their successes. Vermonters in Barre and the surrounding communities have similarly pulled together to face this serious problem, and I believe this hearing will help other small towns across the country learn from their successes.Leahy has advocated a three-pronged approach to combating rising crime levels in America prevention, treatment and enforcement.
