Narcotics Investigations Unit
The primary mission of the Sonoma County Narcotics Unit is to provide quality narcotic/drug enforcement within Sonoma County. The Narcotics Unit is dedicated to complementing local law enforcement agencies in effectively identifying, arresting, and prosecuting narcotic/drug traffickers in order to make the community safe. Detectives conduct investigations involving violations of methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana laws.
The Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit is comprised of five Detectives, one Detective Sergeant. Two of the detectives work full time under a Marijuana Suppression Program grant, which is also supported by the Domestic Cannabis Suppression/Eradication Program grant.
Detectives are certified experts in the area of narcotic investigations, clandestine methamphetamine laboratories, court recognized experts, canine handler expertise, and medical marijuana laws. Detectives work with Federal agencies involving investigations where federal laws would be used to prosecute violators.
Illegal narcotic/drug activity can be reported to the unit. Please telephone (707) 565-2185.
