Course Description

The purpose of integrated drug and contraband interdiction operations is to target criminal organizations, groups, or gangs who transit illegal drugs throughout the United States by way of legitimate commercial transportation enterprises. The course deals with investigative methodologies that involve the detection and interdiction of illicit drugs and other contraband items (e.g., weapons, bulk currency, etc.) that flow through the nation’s transportation hubs (e.g., airports, commercial trains and buses, commercial parcel/package and freight shipping companies). Moreover, drug and contraband interdiction investigations are designed to disrupt and curtail illicit activities at hotels/motels, self-service storage facilities, and rental vehicle companies. Any activities that are directly related to illegal drug distribution and/or other contraband transactions that are reasonably deemed a threat to public safety and to the health of concerned citizens are targeted for further investigation.

The course also addresses investigation techniques specific to self-storage businesses, the storage of dangerous items, which includes items that terrorists may store in preparation for attacks on U.S. soil are comprehensively addressed (e.g., quantities of fuel, agricultural or industrial chemicals, explosives, blasting caps or fuses, weapons or ammunition, flight manuals, truck driving school manuals, or other similar materials).

Topics Included

  • Recognizing and monitoring suspicious activities at businesses such as hotels/motels, self-service storage facilities, and rental vehicle companies
