Drug Task Force Close to Expanding

A drug task force in south-central Kentucky is on the verge of expanding into a third county.

The Bowling Green daily News reports the Barren-Edmonson County Drug Task Force is poised to add Allen County as a partner. The task force is based in Glasgow and investigates drug crimes in Barren and Edmonson counties.

Task force director Jeff Scruggs says the partnership has received approval from city and county governments in Allen County. The final steps are filing and registering paperwork to officially add the third county to the agency.

Under the new arrangement, an officer from the Scottsville Police Department and the Allen County sheriff's office would be assigned to the task force. The sheriff's offices in Barren and Edmonsom counties currently supply detectives to the task force.
