West Virginia sheriffs want access to state's prescription drug tracking system
from The Fayette Tribune
County sheriffs from around West Virginia made it clear during three days of legislative interim meetings recently that they will be pressuring legislators to grant them access to the state's prescription drug tracking system. Currently only about 15 members of the West Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation and an equal number of drug task forces around the state have access to this system. This system collects information about controlled substances, doctors who prescribe these drugs, the pharmacies that dispense them and the individuals who purchase them. Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas asked members of a legislative subcommittee to consider expanding that access to sheriffs of counties not covered by a drug task force.
