Organized Crime And Drug Enforcement Task Force Section

Section Overview

AUSAs in the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force Section ("OCDETF") specialize in developing cases against major drug traffickers for violations of federal drug, money-laundering, tax, and racketeering statutes. AUSAs in this section work closely with federal law enforcement, including the DEA, FBI, ICE and IRS, and with State and local law enforcement, including the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement and the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office. Major narcotics prosecutions, often involving multi-national drug cartels and large violent street gangs, are among the most important cases handled by the USAO.
