Lubbock County Sheriff's Office Receives $196,000 In Grant Money

The Lubbock County Sheriff's Department just got a boost in their budget from Governor Rick Perry.

To help in the fight against drugs, the governor granted Lubbock $196,000. Money which Lubbock County Commissioner Ysidro Gutierrez says will stay in Lubbock.

"This money will be used for all aspects of narcotic law enforcement. Whether it's equipment, whether it's training or any other method the sheriff might need to fight narcotics," said Gutierrez.

Lubbock used to share grant money with other counties on the South Plains, but since the regional drug task force broke up, each county must now apply for grants individually.
