Harrison County Commission Closes Drug Task Force Fund

A little less than a month after Sheriff Albert Marano announced that his department would be leaving the Drugs and Violent Crimes Task Force, on Thursday morning, the Harrison County Commission officially closed the special account they had for the force.

There's about $100,000 left in the account. That money came from forfeitures during different raids by the task force. Commissioners believe the fund will be transferred to the task force since they will no longer be administering the funds.
If in the future, the police departments involved need some extra help, commissioners would look at it like any other funding request.
"There's a lot of controversy right now surrounding the drug task force and certainly if we thought it was a worthwhile endeveor we would be there to help," said Commissioner Mike Romano.

Commissioners had been informed and kept up to date during Marano's decision.
