Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force Program

Program Description:
OCDETF was created in 1982 to mount a comprehensive attack against high-level drug trafficking and related criminal enterprises, including large-scale money laundering organizations, in order to destroy and dismantle these criminal enterprises. The OCDETF program combines the drug enforcement expertise of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), United States Marshals Service (USMS), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF), Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID), United States Customs Service (USCS), and the United States Coast Guard Investigative Service (USCG-IS), with that of the 94 U.S. Attorneys, and the Department of Justice Criminal and Tax Divisions.

The program was established to focus federal, state, and local law enforcement efforts against drug trafficking organizations that pose the most serious threat to our national interests. Congress provided supplemental funding to offset the extraordinary expenses incurred by OCDETF agencies in targeting these organizations. Since its inception, it has become the model for coordinated counterdrug efforts in federal law enforcement. OCDETF investigations, by definition, are conducted by more than one investigative agency, one of which must be an OCDETF federal partner. Agencies are encouraged to work jointly to dismantle drug trafficking organizations and/or significantly disrupt their criminal operations. These cases are often complex and multi-jurisdictional, especially when the investigation targets large-scale regional, national, or international drug trafficking or money laundering organizations. OCDETF cases may also target violent drug trafficking organizations that endanger citizens and terrorize local communities.
