Drug law enforcement investigations deal with crimes as they occur and, in this way, differ from traditional criminal investigations. In many cases the suspects are already identified and the purpose of the investigation is to build a prosecutable case against the suspect, identify other members involved in the drug trafficking organization and seize as many drug-related assets as possible. This course is designed for law enforcement officers who have limited experience in drug offence investigations.
