Spencer County Magistrate Bill Drury made a presentation at the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association’s (KMCA) annual spring conference in Louisville early last month.

During his presentation, Drury detailed information about how to implement a county drug intervention ordinance.

“Spencer, Anderson and Shelby counties have already established the ordinance and it’s working well,” said Drury.

He emphasized the program’s importance and the help it gives the county in the fight to control the ever-growing problem with illegal drugs.   Drury said that Spencer, Anderson and Shelby are some of the first counties to go forward with the program and have established a track record of success. This program is one of the few that the courts have allowed.

“As the success of these counties’ drug intervention programs grow, and the information is spread to others, the number of participating counties will also increase,” said Drury.

Drury serves as the president of the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association. The 574-member KMCA is an organization designed to promote bonds between the state’s magistrates and commissioners for the purpose of training public officials in good legislative practices.
