Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control.
This document contains the proceedings from a conference of state and local narcotics enforcement officials from 24 states and 14 city agencies. Statements from three members of the Select Committee on Narcotics are followed by discussions involving committee members, attendees from state and local agencies, and participants from several federal agencies with drug enforcement responsibilities: the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Customs Service, the Coast Guard, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Narcotics Border Interdiction System, and the White House Drug Abuse Policy Office. Discussions are presented which describe drug-related problems faced by state and local agencies, agency efforts to deal with such problems, existing assistance from the federal government, and suggestions for future assistance from the federal government. Participants' statements, emphasizing the need for cooperation from the federal government in local law enforcement efforts, from planning and policy stages through implementation of efforts and information-sharing, and local needs for money and resources are presented. A list of conference attendees is followed by a summary of a survey in which state and local law enforcement agencies evaluated federal cooperation and assistance with respect to a variety of drug law enforcement objectives.
