Drug Task Force, 2020 Budget, Santa’s Stars – Chelan County Sheriff’s Update

Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett joins Dan Langager on the KOHO Morning Show to talk about the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office rejoining the Columbia River Drug Task Force. Burnett said he thinks the task force is highly effective in getting illegal drugs, firearms and cash off the streets.

Burnett said his office had to make $200,000 in cuts heading into 2020 at the request of the Chelan County Commissioners, as the county is trying to close a $2 million gap in the budget.

And next week all local law enforcement agencies will participate in Shop With A Cop and Santa’s Stars, programs that allow low-income and at-risk youth from the Wenatchee and Eastmont School Districts to shop at Wenatchee’s Hooked On Toys and the Chelan Wal-Mart.
