Drug Task Force


The Hamilton County Drug Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional task force formed in 2002, operating under the assistance and within the guidelines as set forth by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

 

The Task Force is a multi-agency effort tactically commanded by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, and comprised of law enforcement personnel from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, the Jasper Police Department, and the Jennings Police Department.

 

In addition to the core agencies, the Hamilton County Drug Task Force conducts complex joint investigations with surrounding county and city jurisdictional agencies as well as state and Federal agencies to include the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Federal Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

 

The primary goal of the Hamilton County Drug Task Force is to identify and arrest individuals or criminal organizations for the use, sale, and distribution of illegal or controlled substances, and remove the drugs from our streets. This goal ranges from the drug abusers, through the street dealers, up to mid and upper level drug distributors. The targeted drugs include marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroin, and psychedelic substances, as well as prescription drugs used for illegal recreation.

 

The Hamilton County Drug Task Force achieves these goals through interdiction patrol, undercover surveillance, undercover buys, and WITH in-depth investigations based on intelligence information gained from the community. The Hamilton County Drug Task Force could not be effective without the help provided by the community. If you have any information regarding drug activity at any level in or around our community, you may contact the Sgt. Tim McDaniel anonymously at (386) 792-1001.
