Metro Narcotics was created in 1987 in an effort to combat the growing number of drug cases in Adams County. Set up to employ the services of members from both the Adams County Sheriff’s Office and the Natchez Police Department, Metro's seven-person team currently includes four ACSO deputies (including the unit's commander.)
Today, Metro’s objective is to work toward eliminating drugs surfacing in Adams County. Agents associated with Metro Narcotics work in capacities that allow them to go undercover, patrol the county, confiscate drugs, money and weapons from drug dealers and organize and participate in raids.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit was revitalized in 2010 by Sheriff Mayfield in an attempt to add another element to the Office's war on drugs. Joining forces with Metro Narcotics, K-9 Agent Scout and his experienced handler help Metro agents search vehicles, buildings and property for narcotics and their remains. Agent Scout completes some form of training daily.
As a 2 1/2 year-old Golden Retriever, Scout was selected to work with the ACSO when Sheriff Mayfield opted to have the Office's K-9 Unit focus on narcotic detection and tracking and search and rescue. By opting to forego bringing an aggressive dog on board, Scout's friendly and open demeanor allows the K-9 Unit to also be utilized as an educational tool that is used with children and adults in the community.
