Part of Sheriff Goodin's commitment to a drug free Scott County is stopping all drug sources that enter into Scott County no matter where they are. With Scott County Deputies working with our law enforcement friends, (in this case the Indiana State Police), it continues to tell those that intend to cause harm, hate and destruction to Scott County, they better stay away.
