SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

A new agreement will ensure that Siouxland law enforcement agencies continue to benefit from drug-related property seizures.

The Woodbury County Board of Supervisors approved an  equitable sharing deal between the county and several other Siouxland agencies.

If in the course of their work, authorities are able to seize cash, the county will distribute it equally among each department.  If authorities seize property, it goes up for auction, and the money is equally distributed.

"Each of those agencies, by virtue of their participation are entitled to an equitable share of the proceeds that are seized from the people that they charge with federal crimes," said Chief Deputy Greg Logan of the Woodbury County Sheriff's Department.

This is the 15th year the deal has been in place.
