The Vice Unit’s primary mission is to identify and apprehend narcotic traffickers and users by coordinating criminal investigations, stakeouts, undercover operations, interdiction, and surveillance. The Vice Unit coordinates major investigations with Federal, State, and local agencies.
The Vice Unit’s mission also entails seizing monies, vehicles, and other tangible assets that are subject to forfeiture under existing state and federal laws. The seizures are lawfully converted to Office use, thereby denying these resources to the defendants and the furtherance of their criminal activities. In addition, the Vice Unit conducts investigations related to public decency crimes, crimes related to quality of life issues for specific geographic regions, or any other assigned special operation or investigation.
