Lubbock County Sheriff's Office Hopes to Hire More Narcotics Investigators

A new state grant will help the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office fight against drugs. On Thursday, February 24, Governor Rick Perry announced the department will get nearly $196,000 to help reduce illegal drug activity.

The Sheriff's Office applied for the money after the fallout of the South Plains Narcotics Task Force. Chief Deputy Paul Scarborough said they want to hire at least one person to help with narcotics investigations.

Three other counties, Yoakum, Hockley and Hale also received money to fight drug crimes.
