On the evening of May 25, 2023, with the help of police canine, Eyak, Cordova Police Officers seized meth, heroin, and a large amount of fentanyl from incoming passengers at the Cordova Ferry Terminal. Two arrests were made and over 200 pills of fentanyl were seized.
This is one of two drug busts led by the City of Cordova Police Department (CPD) this year and is an outstanding demonstration of their commitment to the health and safety of Cordovans. Chief of Police Andrew Goss commended his officers stating, “I’m incredibly proud of the hard work of my officers and their dedication to cleaning up the drug activity in Cordova.”

The City and local health partners are addressing the drug issue from both law enforcement and community health perspectives. Identifying and arresting the people who are supplying and dealing drugs in Cordova is an important step. CCMC and Ilanka Health Center offer addiction assistance for those needing help, and Narcan kits are available throughout the community for emergency overdose response.
