arcotics Task Force
The Narcotics Task Force is mandated by the Prosecutor to identify, investigate, and apprehend violators of New Jersey's Comprehensive Drug Reform Act. The Task Force utilizes a variety of investigative techniques to accomplish this mission. Methods commonly used include undercover and surface investigations supported by physical and electronic surveillance. The Task Force also targets local drug consumers who undeniably commit incidental crimes to support their addictions.
