During Visit To Jackson County Sheriff's Office

To Jackson County Drug Task Force

JULY 27, 2009 -- Missouri Governor Jay Nixon, during a July 27 visit to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, awarded a Justice Assistance Grant to the Jackson County Drug Task Force.

“Specialized task forces that allow law enforcement officers to focus on solving drug-related crimes are a powerful tool for dealing with troubling issues like the spread of methamphetamine,” Governor Nixon said.

The Jackson County Drug Task Force will receive $341,256, which it intends to use to fund the retention of several officers and their vehicles.

The Nixon administration sought an allocation of Recovery Act funds that would let applicant agencies fill the gap created by federal budget cuts that slashed more than 60 percent of the funding for drug task force initiatives this year.

“These dollars make a real difference for our cops and the people they protect,” Governor Nixon said.
 
In total, $7,339,177 in federal Justice Assistance Grants (JAG) are being awarded to 28 drug task forces operated by counties, municipalities and the Missouri State Highway Patrol and to eight law enforcement agencies to strengthen their law enforcement programs.
