CUMBERLAND GAP, Tenn. (WYMT) - Some Sheriffs from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia are planning to speak at a "Stand in the Gap" event this Saturday.
Eleven Sheriffs from the three border states are part of a panel to discuss the drug problem, what new drugs are surfacing, and what can be done to help stop the drug problem.
The event is called, "Illicit Drug Activity, Alcohol Related Problems, and Associated Family Violence."
The Sheriffs attending will have an opportunity to address the issues in their county.
"Let us know what we can do as faith believing citizens of the Stand in the Gap coalition, what can we do to help them, so we think this is going to be a very important meeting. We're looking forward to it," said Dan Spurlock.
The meeting is open to the public.
It starts at ten o'clock on Saturday morning in Stand in the Gap headquarters in the old church building in Cumberland Gap, Tennessee.
