Drug Law Enforcement Strategies provides an authoritative, insider's perspective on the intricacies of drug crimes, investigations, and trials. Featuring law enforcement officials from around the country, this book guides the reader through the latest trends in the narcotics arena - including new drugs entering the market, the medical marijuana controversy, and the role of technology in investigations - while analyzing how these issues are impacting procedures. These skilled authors highlight proven methods for embarking on an investigation, creating drug-specific case strategies, working with informants, going undercover, and setting short- and long-term goals for an investigation. Looking at the investigator's role in bringing a drug case to court, they also explain how to supply effective evidence, work successfully with prosecutors, and anticipate questions from defense attorneys. Additionally, these leaders reveal their strategies for collaborating with other agencies, training investigators, and coping with shrinking budgets and limited manpower.
