West Central Minnesota Drug & Violent Crimes Task Force

Consisting of eight counties and nine cities within those counties, the West Central Minnesota Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force is staffed by full-time officers from agencies within the task force area. The agents are dispersed throughout the eight counties and work with local, state and federal agencies to stem the manufacture, distribution and use of illegal narcotics.

The task force agents work with local schools, local businesses and other community groups to educate students and citizens about narcotics. Use of Power Point presentations and samples of seized narcotics help demonstrate the dangers of drugs and educate citizens.

Agents assist local agencies within the task force area when major cases arise. Agents have special training in the writing and execution of search warrants and assist in both narcotics and other investigations.
