In Kentucky, Byrne JAG helps to fund 11 Multi-jurisdictional Drug Task Forces. These funds were used to support a wide range of interdiction needs and assist task forces in implementing best practice models. In an effort to improve the effectiveness of enforcement, Byrne JAG funds were used to fund dedicated prosecutors to assist two of the drug task forces with strengthening the evidentiary chain and improving enforcement outcomes. Byrne JAG funds were also awarded to the Bowling Green – Warren County Drug Task Force to support the Kentucky Narcotic Officer’s Conference which highlighted The Naked Truth About Marijuana, Drug Related Death Investigations and Detecting Deception.
