Formed in 1990, the Hamilton/Boone County Drug Task Force is a partnership of several law enforcement agencies serving to stem the flow and distribution of illegal substances into and within the two counties. Through the use of specialized training and technology, the Drug Task Force investigates the illegal trafficking of controlled substances, including, but not limited to, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, alprazolam, buprenorphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, MDMA, psilocybin, and synthetic drugs.
The primary mission of the Drug Task Force is to identify and arrest individuals or members of organizations that are selling, delivering, or storing illegal drugs and/or weapons in the jurisdictions of Hamilton and Boone Counties. The Drug Task Force also works to identify property and assets that have been acquired with the proceeds of the sale, delivery, or storage of illegal drugs and/or weapons and submit those items for forfeiture. Accordingly, improving the quality of life for the area's neighborhoods is a key goal.
