The task force ceased operating last month because it wouldn’t be getting the $100,000 grant it requested.
The federal funds are funneled through the Nebraska Crime Commission.
Commission grants administrator Lisa Stamm says the grants review committee noted that the task force just focused on street-level buys, “and the feds are looking at more mid- to upper-level buys.”
Stamm says that for the last couple years, the commission has focused on high-level drug operators, not street-level dealers.
