Across the board Michigan State Police drug teams like the Bay Area Narcotics Team are seeing the number of complaints, arrests and searches climb year in and year out.

BAYANET covers a six county area including Clare, Isabella and Gladwin counties.

They work together with local city and county departments focusing on drug investigations.

Despite the fact the team lost three officers due to budget cuts last year, 2012 was their busiest year yet as they work to rid the streets of an epidemic.
