The Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team, a combined unit of the Bartholomew County Sheriffs Office, the Columbus Police Department and the Bartholomew County Prosecutors Office, is proactively targeting the manufacturing and abuse of dangerous drugs in Columbus and Bartholomew County.

For the first time, the Bartholomew County Sheriffs Office assigned a deputy to the Drug Enforcement Administration as a DEA Task Force Officer. This deputy works directly with the DEA, Indianapolis Office, in our effort to keep drugs out of Bartholomew County.

All suspects should be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Our relationship with federal drug enforcement efforts has allowed JNET to investigate crimes they would not previously have had the resources to address, increase funding, manpower and other resources that are necessary for such investigations and increase intelligence information gathering and sharing all of which result in a more efficient, broader and swifter attack on drug issues plaguing our community, said Bartholomew County Sheriff Matthew A. Myers.
