The Narcotics Section is a subsection of the Criminal Investigations Division. This section is comprised of two full time narcotics detectives with specialized training and experience with illegal drugs in Union County. The detectives collect and organize tips, coordinate individual cases and "buys," and process paperwork and case files related to drug arrests and seizures. Duties may include working cases from simple possession of illegal drugs, to breaking down dangerous methamphatemine labs, to high trafficking cases involving the transportation of controlled substances in or through Union County. These detectives work closely with the El Dorado Police Department's Special Investigations Division and the 13th Judicial District's Drug Task Force, as well as EPD and UCSO SWAT teams, in their daily efforts to help combat the sale, transportation, distribution, and use of illegal and dangerous substances in our communities.
Drug distribution and use is a proven link to many crimes committed in our area. In our battle against illegal drugs, we are also fighting many other property, identity, and violent offenses committed against our citizens. By emphasizing our goals to minimize the dangerous additctions that illegal drug use creates, we help improve the safety and the quality of life for Union County residents.
