Worthington to end participation in drug task force


WORTHINGTON — The Worthington City Council voted unanimously Monday night to end the Worthington Police Department's participation in the Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force.

WPD will continue to investigate drug crimes independently from the task force.

The council opted to give 90 days notice before officially leaving the task force, at which time the city of Worthington will also stop serving as the BRDTF fiscal agent.
