ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers are getting $2 million from the federal government to fight illegal drugs.
Sen. Ted Stevens helped secure the funds from the Justice Department.
The money is earmarked for the troopers' Statewide Drug Enforcement Unit, which coordinates efforts with local law enforcement agencies throughout the state.
The unit investigates illegal distribution of controlled substances and alcohol. It also provides training to law enforcement agencies and participates in public education programs.
