So there is no issue of jurisdiction except maybe whether or not the officers were working outside of their area of primary taxpayer funding.
And even that isn't, strictly speaking, a "jurisdictional" argument - it's an inter-agency squabble, and usually over money received from fines/confiscated items. Counties, towns and cities like to spend a lot of money on enforcement gear and much of the funding for that comes from recoveries from defendants. They don't want a cop from another county, town or city entering their "turf" and poaching their fish, if you will.
