Grove explained that since taking office “I have been working diligently with local law enforcement and members of the North Central Municipal Drug Task Force to combat the rising rate of drug overdoses and overdose deaths plaguing our community.” He noted “the role of District Attorney is about never giving up the pursuit of justice, and I look forward to continuing to put my energy, commitment, and experience to work each and every day to protect the families of Elk County and to make our community a safe place to live.”
