The Pennyrile Narcotics Task Force was awarded funds on Thursday to support its mission across western Kentucky.

The group received $281,453 as part of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant.

The task force is comprised of 11 counties, including Caldwell, Christian, Crittenden, Lyon, Livingston, and Trigg.

In total, nearly $2 million in federal funds was divided among law enforcement agencies across Kentucky to allow for access to new resources, expand personnel, and much needed equipment.

Historically, the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet has awarded JAG funding to support drug task forces in the state. However, this time funding was also made available to support victim advocacy and assistance programs, and a community mental health support team.
