COMBAT

Jackson County voters first approved a tax to "combat" drug use and drug-related crime in 1989. Later dubbed "COMBAT" -- for the Community Backed Anti-Drug Tax -- the tax has permitted Jackson County to approach the impact of drugs on individuals and entire communities as both a legal issue and public health crisis. The three pillars of the COMBAT program are Prevention, Treatment and Law Enforcement.
