Course Description: 

Narcotic investigators are faced with a challenge and dynamic assignment of proactively targeting individuals involved in the illicit manufacture, distribution, and/or possession of narcotics. Oftentimes, investigators are assigned to a narcotic unit and receive limited training. This can inadvertently lead to critical errors in various aspects of narcotic-related investigations. This five-day training course will properly prepare officers with the tools they need to successfully conduct a narcotic investigation. Officers will receive in-depth training on common street drug identification, paraphernalia, cutting agents, current prices, and terminology.

 Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: 

  1. Identify commonly abused illegal narcotics and abused prescription drugs
  2. Recognize cutting agents and drug paraphernalia
  3. Recognize clandestine labs
  4. Recognize and assist drug endangered children
  5. Recite updated narcotic search & seizure laws
  6. Conduct interview and interrogation of narcotic suspects
  7. Cultivate confidential informants
  8. Conduct controlled operations and operation briefings
  9. Identify methods to process warrant scenes
  10. Identify and conduct drug-related overdose death investigations
  11. Conduct covert surveillance
  12. Recognize ethical dilemmas during narcotic investigations
