Details

Fighting the trade of illegal drugs is harder today than ever. Drug traffickers deal their wares with state-of-the-art equipment and streamlined, well-organized distribution systems. Drugs are produced in secret labs or in other countries and smuggled into the United States by land, sea, and air. And many violent crimes, from murders committed by rival drug dealers to robberies perpetrated by addicts in need of money for their next fix, are tied to drugs. Luckily, law enforcement is working hard to keep up with these lawbreakers. Techniques used to fight illegal drugs grow more sophisticated every day. Drug Crime looks at how drugs are produced, transported, and sold, and examines the many methods used by police around the world to combat the illegal drug trade.

Chapters include:
  • America's Ever-Changing Drug Problem
  • Use of Informants
  • Drug Sniffing Dogs
  • Wiretaps and Other Types of Electronic Surveillance
  • The Flow of Drugs.

  • International cooperation among governments and law enforcement agencies
  • How drugs are transported and sold
  • Why police rely on informants
  • How drugs are detected
  • Law enforcement surveillance equipment and practices
  • Battling drug barons overseas
