SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Chatham Savannah Narcotics Team received recognition for their renewal of state certification by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police.

Chief David Lyons made the presentation. CNT Director, Everette Ragan, says it is a huge achievement, especially considering the unit is made up of officers and agents from several different agencies.

"So, we are a hodgepodge of all the law enforcement within this community, and for us to be able to receive this recognition and to follow the policies and the guidelines, shows that we have the foundation for a well run organization," said Everette Ragan, Dir. Savannah Chatham Narcotics Team.

The Chatham County Commission also nominated CNT for an award from the National Association for County Commissioners. We will let you know what happens.
