Local Drug Task Force To Work With Less Funding
In calendar year 2010, Drug Task Forces in Wisconsin initiated over 1500 new investigations and out of those, hundreds of arrests and prosecutions have taken place. But to do all that you need funding. The Western Wisconsin Drug Task Force, which covers 5 local counties and 17 agencies, will recieve over $36 thousand in funding this year.....but according to Jeff Wolf, it's a huge cut from years past.
Wisconsin's 18 Drug Task Forces cover 56 of the state's 72 counties, and eight of Wisconsin's 11 tribes. They will all share in over $1 million in federal funding this year.
