The initiative began in High Point, N.C. and has expanded to several cities around the country. Charleston joined the initiative last year, the second West Virginia city to do so. Huntington had joined the initiative in 2010 and targeted the city's Fairfield neighborhood. The U.S. Department of Justice gave the Charleston Police Department a $475,698 grant for the Drug Market Intervention initiative in August.
