CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The Chatham Savannah Counter Narcotics Team is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

A commemoration ceremony was held Tuesday at CNT headquarters. The team was founded in 1994 and is made up of officers from various law enforcement agencies throughout Chatham and Bryan County who work together to combat drug crime in Chatham County.

"It has truly been an exceptional law enforcement agency that has protected the citizens of Chatham County from drugs for 20 years that's not a small accomplishment and I'm so lucky to be part of it. We also remember the person who started it all Thomas Sprague and Spencer Lawton and the elected officials at the time. They had the right idea," said Chatham County Manager Russ Abolt.

CNT is the second largest drug unit in the state second to Atlanta.
