Attorney General Marty Jackley announced that the Tea Police Department has been awarded $3,614.00 for computer, heat sealer, cell phone recorders and cameras to be used in drug investigations. The money was awarded out of the Drug Control Fund. The award will assist local law enforcement in drug control and apprehension purposes.
“The Drug Control Fund allows law enforcement to combat controlled substance abuse by funding local programs with monies seized from drug arrests,” said Jackley. “These funds will assist the Tea Police Department to better protect its community.”
“Our department has seen an increase in drug related traffic stops and arrests. As our enforcement efforts increase, so do our needs. This award allows us to meet those needs and continue our commitment to our community,” said Chief Jessica Quigley.
