ALBANY, GA (WALB) -The Dougherty County Grand Jury  recommended that a countywide curfew be established for children and that part of drug money seizures be used for school drug programs.

The Grand Jury recommended that a portion of seized drug money be given to schools for supplies and equipment for anti-drug classes.

They also suggested that seized drug vehicles be used for driver education programs.

Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards said "Just showing that the consequences of drug activity will not get you any profit."

The Grand Jury also recommended commissioners establish a county wide curfew to prevent teens and younger children from being on the streets at night unsupervised.
