    There is safety in numbers which is what Sheriff Lou Roberts is hoping for with the renewal of the County-City Drug Task Force Agreement. Sheriff Roberts welcomed Chief Jake Barley from Graceville Police Department, Chief Mike Miller from Sneads Police Department and Chief William Watford from Cottondale Police Department.
    Roberts said these three towns were teaming up with JCSO in their battle against drugs in Jackson County, “I know their drug problems are as bad for them as they are for us and I know their resources and manpower are very limited for all of us. Agencies do not have an abundance of staff to put on drugs alone. The drug traffic moves from one area to another. They may be in Cottondale today and next week, will have moved to Malone or Sneads. This makes it all the more difficult to track them down and successfully arrest them. Pooling our resources adds a huge benefit to law enforcement and hopefully a downside to the drug dealers.”
    The trio of chiefs and Sheriff Roberts signed the agreement and all expressed their appreciation of the opportunity to work together in this joint effort.
