    Narcotics

    The Special Investigation Section’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.
