The METRICH Enforcement Unit (https://www.metrich.com/) began as an investigative group with the goal of reducing the availability of illegal drugs in Richland County. The unit now serves 10 counties: Richland, Crawford, Huron, Morrow, Knox, Seneca, Marion, Ashland, Hancock and Wyandot.

The Shelby Police Department is committed to reducing drug abuse in Shelby. In early 2014, the Shelby Police Department assigned a full-time Shelby police officer to serve on the METRICH Enforcement Unit. The assigned officer has been trained as Drug Recognition Expert and recognizes when a person is under the influence.
