The Kanawha County Commission recognized the work of a local drug enforcement agency Thursday.
And, to say thanks, it gave the group some extra money.
Commisioners took time at Thursday night's meeting to recognize the Metro Drug Agency after the agency nearly doubled the amount of drugs confiscated last year.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin was there to emphasize the importance of school safety and the relationship between school and law enforcement.
The commission also donated $20,000 to Eyewitness News’ In-Vest initiative, an effort made into law that requires all county police officers to be outfitted with a bulletproof vest.
The commission was generous in its monetary reward to the Metro Drug Enforcement agency, giving the group an additional $35,000.
