Drug Identification and Investigation for Law Enforcement. This book is written as a guide to the identification and investigation of illicit drugs. This book differs from other books written on the subject in two basic ways. First, the majority of books written on illicit drugs are currently from a sociological viewpoint.

The chapter on drug identification not only explains the drugs of abuse all law enforcement officers are likely to encounter, such as heroin, marijuana, and cocaine, but also contain in-depth information about methamphetamine, PCP, and the emerging club drug, Ecstasy, GHB, and Ketamine. This book replicates and greatly expands on many of the topics both new and in-service employees of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) receive in their training. There are two major parts. The first deals in the fundamentals of drug investigation and includes comprehensive chapters on drug identification, undercover operations, and the handling of confidential informants. The second part is devoted to complex drug cases with chapters on conspiracy investigations, clandestine laboratories, intelligence, and money laundering.
Traditional drug identification methods. When suspected illegal substances are encountered in the field, colorimetric testing is performed. This identifies the most likely class of compound (amphetamine, cocaine, et., but is prone to subjective results and false positives. By deploying the capability for chemical analysis into the field, law enforcement agencies can reduce the pressure on forensic laboratories for confirmatory identification. The need for better screening in the field has led to the development of ruggedized GC-MS and FTIR instruments, as well as handheld Raman systems. This portable kit is designed for crime-scene investigation, gathering evidence, and work in the forensic laboratory. The LEDs provide six single-wavelength light sources, each useful for specific applications, from bodily fluids to fingerprints.
Drug investigation units within a police department or state public safety agency are designed to combat illegal narcotic distribution networks and prepare evidence for the successful prosecution of criminals involved in drug-related crimes. Drug investigators may also work through specialized drug squads or task forces, many of which are and many of which are part of federal units, including the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and Explosives
Modernising drug law enforcement - Report 5. Since the 1980s, there has been a major push in rhetoric and, emphasizing the centrality of attacking the financial lifeblood of drug trafficking networks and organised economic crimes. Much progress has been made in legislation and the creation of financial intelligence units. However, easier guidance is needed on how to get information overseas, and delays in international cooperation lead to under-exploitation of financial investigation opportunities
Drug investigation units commence investigations based on the information they receive from their sources, which include officers on the street, members of the community, confidential informants, and other multiple agencies involved in law enforcement. Many drug enforcement agencies and police department units or divisions work to gather intelligence and interpret that intelligence as part of their ongoing law enforcement efforts. These professionals create and update intelligence databases on drug offenders and the trends in drugs and drug-related crimes in their particular jurisdictions. Many law enforcement departments and units do not use any form of caller identification, and they do not tape record phone conversations from callers providing tips, intelligence, and information. Such information, tips, and intelligence can be collected through submitting online forms or by phone. More About This Topic.
