The Special Investigation Unit's primary focus is on mid-to-major level narcotic dealers and distributors. These are individuals who sell quantities of drugs to others and include the transportation of narcotics in vehicles. Even though most of our resources are used building cases on individuals in this category, we also spend time on smaller street level dealers that require covert surveillance. Sometimes other techniques are needed such as utilizing undercover officers to purchase drugs from problem locations or buying drugs from individuals who sell narcotics at the street level.
How do I report narcotic or vice related activity in my neighborhood? For activity that is occurring now, please call the Pasadena Police Department ‘s main phone number at (626) 744-4241. To provide confidential information for vice or narcotic activity call the SIU direct voice mail at (626) 744-TIPS. What are some warning signs of possible drug abuse?
