The Conway Police Department has a new plan to fight crime. The city wants to train workers at the waste department to be on the look out for evidence. Police said the goal of the "Workers on the Watch" program is to train city employees to spot possible crimes.
"When they are out collecting trash they are going o be looking for evidence of drug production among other things," said Detective Dan Repass, Conway PD. "They will be looking for suspicious activity and they will be contacting their dispatch who will then call the police with that information."
Officers said workers will look for very specific evidence such as excessive amounts of batteries tossed in the trash. Police said that could be a sign of methamphetamine production.
