Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)

Drug Enforcement AdministrationIn 2001 the Ferndale Police Department formed a partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) by assigning an officer to work with the DEA on a full time basis. This partnership benefits the department by allowing us to take advantage of the vast resources and information sharing capabilities of the federal government, as well has making the department the beneficiary of a portion of forfeited monies of illegal drug trafficking operations that are investigated by the DEA. This temporary assignment will rotate among interested officers every three years.

Many of the large illegal drug trafficking organizations that have been investigated and dismantled by the DEA, have had a direct impact on the availability of illegal drugs in the city of Ferndale and to it's residents.
