CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --

Overdose deaths in Chattanooga have marked the highest number recorded in 2019, according to figures just released by the Chattanooga Police Department (CPD).

Last year, there were 64 overdose-related deaths in the city. For 2018, CPD says that number was at 42. As of February 13th of this year, there have been 12.

Terry Topping has been an investigator for the narcotics unit with the Chattanooga police department for almost 18 years. He investigates all crimes involving illegal drugs.

"They're putting the poison out there. They're causing the addiction. they're causing the destruction of society," he tells us.

Detective Topping says a lot has changed.

"We've seen the rise and fall from everything from the cocaine eras to the ecstasy era, meth labs, to pill mills."

But Detective Topping says the opioid addiction is a much larger group than ever before on other epidemics. "The strength of that addiction is so strong that its really hard to combat that addiction and take care of the supply."

Local law enforcement now taking an aggressive approach to making arrests. But now, Detective Topping says only going after the drug dealers isn't the only answer."We try and draw the people who are affected by the addiction intro rehab centers and into facilities," Topping says. "Getting to know a lot of them, you realize a lot of them made a bad decision down their life or somethings happened in their life that got them to where they are affected by this addiction."

Topping says the answer is also recovery. He says the number one thing he wants people to takeaway is that there are resources available.
