Narcotics Unit

The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force officially began operations in January of 2004. Prior to that, local law enforcement agencies within Shelby County responded individually to the threat of illegal narcotics, within their individual jurisdictions. Law enforcement leaders within Shelby County wanted to take a more proactive approach toward the illegal drug problem and together formed the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force (Task Force). This cooperative effort is designed to take a county-wide approach to the narcotics problems within Shelby County.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force is to create an environment free of illegal drugs within Shelby County and its communities, schools and places of work.

The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force hopes to eliminate illegal narcotics from Shelby County, Alabama, by investigating complaints of illegal narcotics activity, by arresting illegal narcotic offenders, by aiding in the criminal prosecution of illegal narcotics offenders, by seizing and destroying illegal narcotics and the equipment used to manufacture illegal narcotics, through educational programs presented to civic organizations and our local schools, and by promoting a drug free environment through the personal lives of its members.

The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional county-wide Task Force whose mission is to reduce the availability of illegal and illicit drugs within Shelby County. We accomplish this through investigating illegal narcotics activity, arresting illegal narcotics offenders and assisting with the criminal prosecution of the offenders we arrest. The Task Force is federally funded through the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and directly supported by the Shelby County Commission, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, Alabaster Police Department, Montevallo Police Department and the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office.

The Task Force is comprised of law enforcement officers from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, the Alabaster Police Department and the Montevallo police Department. Every Investigator assigned to the Task Force receives specialized training in the general areas of narcotics investigations. The Task Force also assists other law enforcement agencies with sensitive investigations that require specialized equipment and technical expertise. In addition, the Task Force works closely with all federal law enforcement agencies.

The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force is located at:
