Established in 1973, this anti- drug agency combined the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) and Customs’ drug agents to provide exclusive enforcement of federal drug laws. DWith the direct cooperation of our state and local partners, the creation of the Task Force Program is one of the most productive ways that DEA enforces these laws.  https://www.dea.gov/state-and-local-task-forces Region II Narcotics Task Force http://fmtn.org/524/Region-II Excerpt:  The Region II Narcotics Task Force is a multi-jurisdiction­al / multi-agency entity, established through its coordinating council to reduce narcotics use, sales, and traffick­ing within San Juan County. The task force attacks drug dealing at all lev­els: street, mid, and upper-level traf­fickers, as well as organized trafficking conspira­cies. These alliances are best dealt with via the multi-jurisdictional concept, as they span city, county, and tribal land boundaries within the State of New Mex­ico. This coordinated effort provides a means for pooling equipment, expertise and manpow­er within the region.  In July of 1999, San Juan County was designated as a high intensity drug traf­ficking area (HIDTA). The additional funding and manpower pro­vided by this program allows for increased interdiction and investigative efforts in San Juan County by mem­bers of the task force. The additional resources will allow for a more concerted effort by the task force in the area of disrupting organized metham­phetamine distribu­tion operations. The task force continues to maintain a strong working relationship with local, state, and federal agencies.  Region II is committed to the apprehension and conviction of drug traffickers, drug trafficking organizations, and gang members in San Juan County. Region II is also responsible for training and teaching patrol personnel current drug trends, teaching at the police academy, and teaching drug awareness classes to civic groups. http://fmtn.org/524/Region-II    Region III Narcotics Task Force http://www.sfpdonline.com/narcotics-unit/   Southwest Border HIDTA - Partnership of Five Regions Efforts at Synchronization    https://www.nmhidta.org/?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 Excerpt: The Southwest Border High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area is a partnership of five regions along the Southwest Border. It includes New Mexico, West Texas, South Texas, Arizona, and the San Diego-Imperial HIDTA (SDI) which is the southern part of California. The partnership's mission is to develop a synchronized system that involves the coordination of drug intelligence, interdiction, investigation, and prosecution, thereby reducing the impact of illicit drugs in each of the regions and other areas of the country.
