Nunn reelected Narcotics Officer President


Commander Wesley Nunn of the Ocmulgee Drug Task Force and president of the Georgia Narcotics Officer Association (GNOA) is shown giving out the first scholarship check in the name of Crisp County Sheriff Donnie Haralson (Middle) to Krista Latham, a criminology student at Georgia Southern University.

Nunn was also reelected GNOA President for another two-year term at the annual conference held last week at the King and Prince on St. Simons Island, Ga. He received votes from more than 190 GNOA participants.

Nunn heads up the Ocmulgee Drug task force covering the counties of Baldwin, Wilkinson, Washington and Hancock which includes the cities of Milledgeville, Sandersville, Eatonton, Madison and Greensboro.

During the conference, instructors from the DEA, Secret Service, GBI and the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council presented and attendees heard updates on current laws such as House Bill 1. This is a major bill that if pasted will affect the way drug seizure monies are distributed statewide.

"As president we have many contributing factors in drug investigations in the state. With the fight for dollars from the Burn Jag Grant administrated by CJCC funds, we hope to keep this task force in place in Middle Georgia and if this bill passes it will hinder the way we operate," Nunn said. "I have a huge fight in keeping drug investigation at the forefront. We can't let the cartels, and the local drug dealers win in this fight."
