MANSFIELD -- A new $124,191 state grant for the METRICH Enforcement Unit makes the drug task force "whole" for the year, according to Mansfield police Chief Keith Porch.

The new funds, part of $2.3 million being distributed statewide through the RecoveryOhio Law Enforcement Fund, will supplement the $166,481 that METRICH received earlier this year through the Ohio Drug Law Enforcement Fund.
