According to a news release, the Drug Task Force will combine narcotics investigators from both sheriff’s offices who will work together to combat the dangerous drugs plaguing both counties.

Sheriff Rob Maciol and Sheriff Todd Hood say the Task Force investigators have been cross deputized by both of them, and the investigators have full jurisdiction to enforce state laws regarding the possession, sale, manufacture and distribution of illegal narcotics.

The two sheriffs hope that the new approach will make both Oneida and Madison counties safer.
