CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Grady County will continue to participate on the Southwest Georgia Drug Task Force.
The task force was a joint partnership between Grady, Mitchell, and Baker counties. Baker County pulled out earlier this year and the commander recently resigned.
But Grady County will stick it out, at least for now. Grady County Sheriff Harry Young says,"We all decided it'd be the best thing, we're going to try it for a year and see how it goes. If not we'll all split off and get our own drug squad in each county."
The advantage to having multi-county agencies is federal grant money. When Baker left, some funding was cut.
