Law Enforcement in the Triangle
Any victim of drug assault should consider filing a report with the local police or the campus police force if you are a student. The report may or may not be taken seriously, but it will at least provide documentation and data the police can use to identify patterns.
If you are still under the influence of the drug or in a dangerous situation, CALL 911 and get to safety first. Otherwise, here are the non-emergency numbers for several local police forces:
