Geneva County Drug Task Force

Earlier this week, we told you the Geneva County Drug Task Force is in danger of losing its federal funding.

The three member squad relies almost exclusively on a U.S. Department of Justice Grant.

A stipulation of the grant requires at least three law enforcement agencies supply personnel to the task force.

Slocomb Police Chief David Land has agreed to have one of his officers transferred to the drug task force. Chief Land says it's important that the task force remain intact.

That’s why one person from his six-member department will work full-time fighting drugs in Geneva County. This fulfills the personnel requirement for the drug task force grant.

Now, Sheriff Greg Ward is just waiting to hear whether the justice department will renew it.
