Kokomo Tribune on 12-10-15 by Josh Sigler
Chuck McCoskey keeps a chart posted on a bulletin board on the wall of his office in the basement of the Howard County courthouse.
The assistant chief of probation wants to keep for himself, and those serving probation, a sobering reminder of what the continued abuse of drugs and alcohol can do to an individual.
“Over the last four years I’ve posted every alcohol and drug related death in Howard County,” McCoskey said. “They’re in front of me every day. This year, we have 38 confirmed drug-and-alcohol related deaths in Kokomo. That’s what motivates us.”
