Basic narcotic training courses focus on drug identification, types of informants, operational planning, and search warrant execution. Advanced narcotic training courses focus on drug cartels, money laundering, complex conspiracy investigations, and interstate/international wiretap cases. While these two types of training programs are a necessary part of drug enforcement, there is a considerable gap in the training available to law enforcement officers that target mid-level drug dealers. This training course will teach officers how to identify, target, infiltrate, and prosecute drug organizations that often go undetected. Concepts utilized by federal agencies to dismantle interstate narcotic traffickers will be presented to show how the same concepts can be utilized by local & state police officers to dismantle mid-level narcotic dealers flooding communities with drugs. This training curriculum was developed to target mid-level drug dealers using all available resources including both state and federal narcotic and firearm laws. All the material presented in this course is based solely on methods and techniques that have been extremely effective in previous mid-level investigations.
