ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Drug agents expect to see an increase in drug trafficking around this time of the year. 

Albany Dougherty Drug Unit is being proactive about keep drugs out of the community. 

Agents said residents should expect to see more traffic stops and more people going to jail for drug possessions. 

They will also be cracking down on rural neighborhoods to deter drug dealers from setting up shop in those areas.  

They're asking residents to be vigilant and watch for suspicious activity. 

"People are getting smarter. They're not stopping and we're not stopping, we're not letting go. As long as there are drugs in our community, we're going to continue to be there," said ADDU Commander Major Prurince Dice. 

Albany Dougherty Drug agents said so far drug trafficking stats have been consistent as last year.
