Campbell reaps benefits of HIDTA

On March 14, 2017, Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties were awarded $275,000 from the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Yesterday, the Fiscal Courts of Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties were granted more than a quarter of a million dollars from the federal government to intensify Northern Kentucky’s fight against the opioid epidemic. These funds are being fully directed to the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force to support law enforcement initiatives to battle illegal distribution and use of heroin across the region.

On March 14, 2017, the Office of National Drug Control Policy released a promissory note for $275,000 to Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties as part of the three-county area’s inclusion in the Ohio High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA). Additional funds are anticipated to be released in 2018.

First announced on October 13, 2016, Northern Kentucky’s joining the Ohio HIDTA signals recognition that an infusion of federal resources and increased law enforcement tools will assist in the fight against the opioid epidemic here. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was critical to securing the HIDTA designation.

“Northern Kentucky continues to feel the impact that the opioid epidemic has had on our families and region,” said Chris Conners, Director of the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force. “We look forward to leveraging these additional resources, especially to be able to access new intelligence sharing tools and to fund more officers to police our community.”

The opioid epidemic has had a profound effect on local government budgets, so a benefit of the HIDTA funding includes increased law enforcement activities with new, non-local dollars being used.

“Confronting this epidemic continues to prove a challenging and critical battle for Northern Kentucky,” said Steve Pendery, Campbell County Judge/Executive. “It is taking a toll on all aspects of our local governments’ budgets, but this new funding, a direct result of Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties being added to the Ohio HIDTA, is yet another example of how we have worked to find sources of outside funding to assist. Thanks to Senator McConnell’s efforts, this funding will ease the burden on local taxpayers in a fight where losing is not an option.”
