Summary:
James Campbell interviews the Commander of the 7th police district, Lieutenant in charge of VICE unit, Lieutenant in charge of casual clothes and scooter units, and Crime Analyst about drug and criminal activity in the 11th Precinct of Washington, D.C.

The Lieutenant in charge of the VICE unit talks about police procedures for investigating and arresting those involved in drug activities, and stresses the police can only control drugs with the help of the community.
