Ariz. mayors, federal drug policy director to meet

PHOENIX — A group of Arizona mayors plans to meet with the White House
drug policy director for a roundtable discussion Thursday.

The discussion will center on federal and local efforts to stop drug
trafficking and ways to make communities safer.

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton says there are now twice as many Border Patrol
Agents as there were in 2004 and border security has been bolstered but more
work needs to be done.

Drug Policy Director Gil Kerlikowske is also scheduled to visit southern
Arizona on Friday.
