Multi-County Drug Task Forces

Pursuant to HB 1239, which was passed by the 79th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature, the Department of Public Safety is tasked with performing certain evaluations of multi-county drug task forces and to submit semiannual reports on the evaluations to the governor's office and the Legislative Budget Board. 

The DPS Criminal Investigations Division has produced a manual to document the operational policies and procedures required by the statute governing the operation of multi-county drug task forces.  These policies and procedures are intended to provide standardized operational procedures by which multi-county drug task forces will operate in Texas. The purpose of these policies is to comply with HB 1239 and provide uniform drug law enforcement to the citizens of Texas.
