FOIA Library:

Many proactively disclosed documents are available to the public without having to make a FOIA request in the Department’s FOIA Libraries. These documents are called "proactive disclosures" because they are automatically posted online by all Department components.

Component Description

The Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) is the keystone of the Attorney General’s prosecutor-led strategy to disrupt and dismantle large-scale narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and high priority transnational organized crime networks.  OCDETF combines the resources and expertise of its federal prosecutors and member federal law enforcement agencies in coordinated, multi-agency, long-term investigations designed to attack and destroy command and control elements of major criminal organizations.  Records maintained include those relating to the administration of the Program.
