For the first time, the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit has been awarded for their efforts in dismantling drug trafficking operations in southern Colorado.

The unit received the Colorado Drug Investigators Association's (CDIA) Regional Vice President's Award at the organization's 8th annual training conference from August 18-20 in Breckenridge.

The CDIA is a non profit organization with a purpose to educate the citizens of Colorado with important information regarding drug issues. These include use, abuse, prevention and crime.

Below is a statement released by the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office:

With the limited funding the Narcotics unit receives, they were still able to assist the Southern Colorado Drug Task Force by dismantling a major drug trafficking organization (DTO). These investigations have resulted in numerous arrests. In addition, the efforts of the narcotics unit over the past year has resulted in the seizure of numerous guns, heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine and marijuana (not related to medicinal purposes).

Congratulations to the hard working deputies of the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office, Narcotics Unit.
