Mission Statement: The mission of the
Jefferson County Narcotics Division is to apply their knowledge
and skills by investigating, identifying, apprehending and assisting
in the successful prosecution of those persons who violate the
laws of the State of Texas, and of the United States, by trafficking
in the manufacture, distribution and sale of illegal narcotics
and other dangerous drugs.
The task force combats the proliferation of illegal
narcotics by concentrating their enforcement in a multi-agency
task force/multi-jurisdictional task force that focuses on the
distribution and sale of street level illegal narcotics. They
also enhance efforts in the area of manufacturing and transshipment
of illegal narcotics. These deputies and officers patrol major
U.S. highways and interstates throughout Jefferson County and
conduct under-cover operations in order to deter criminal activity.
These specially trained deputies and officers target major criminals,
and narcotic smugglers, and traffickers who attempt to deliver
bulk quantities of illicit drugs from other locations with destination
into and through Jefferson County.
