National Evaluation of the COPS Methamphetamine Initiative

This is a cross-site evaluation of the COPS FY 98 Methamphetamine Initiative, which supported projects in Salt Lake County, Phoenix, Dallas, Oklahoma City, and Little Rock. The aim of the evaluation is to gauge the successfulness of the sites’ efforts to combat methamphetamine problems in their respective communities. Project tasks include conducting interviews with key representatives of agencies participating in the Methamphetamine Initiative; surveying those individuals with respect to the level of partnership and interaction among agencies; and conducting interviews with persons involved with methamphetamine (drug court program participants, arrestees, people in treatment whose primary drug of abuse is methamphetamine).
