Abstract: The State Police continued to provide the services of its Community Narcotics Enforcement Teams (CNET) to local law enforcement agencies. CNET makes undercover troopers and investigators available to local police agencies, primarily to make "street-level" purchases from local drug dealers. CNET's effectiveness was demonstrated in August 1992 when division members, working with local police officers, conducted a successful sweep through Buffalo's East Side, arresting nearly 100 drug dealers and their customers. Called "Operation Crackdown," this anti-drug offensive constituted one of the largest roundups of street-level criminals in New York State history. Highway and traffic safety remained a top priority for the State Police during 1992; in this area efforts continued to show positive results. In addition to motorist education activities, troopers again showed their determination to make the State's roads safer by removing intoxicated, impaired, and reckless drivers from the highway. Data released in 1992 showed a record low highway fatality rate of 1.85 deaths per 100 million miles of vehicle travel in New York State. This marked the fourth consecutive year in which the State set a new low for highway fatalities. Violent crime, facilitated by ready access to guns and fueled by the destructive engine of illicit drugs, continues to increase. Random acts of violence, drive-by shootings, and serial killings, once considered rarities, have become almost regular occurrences in society, and now number among the expected crimes that a State Trooper must confront. Violence and predatory crime are growing among youth.
