Upcoming ECLEF-Sponsored Training

Mid-Level Narcotics Investigations
Thursday - Friday
Mar 09 - 10, 2023, 8:30 - 4:30
Swan Auditorium, Hilbert College

Basic narcotic training courses focus on drug identification, types of informants, operational planning, and search warrant execution. Advanced narcotic training courses focus on drug cartels, money laundering, complex conspiracy investigations, and interstate/international wiretap cases. While these two types of training programs are a necessary part of drug enforcement, there is a considerable gap in the training available to law enforcement officers that target mid-level drug dealers. This training course will teach officers how to identify, target, infiltrate, and prosecute drug organizations that go undetected. Concepts utilized by federal agencies to dismantle interstate narcotic traffickers will be presented to show how the same concepts can be utilized by local and state police officers to dismantle narcotic dealers flooding communities with drugs.

This training curriculum was developed to target mid-level drug dealers using all available resources including both state and federal narcotic and firearm laws. All the material presented in this course is based solely on methods and techniques that have infiltrated numerous mid-level drug groups and know how to attack every aspect of the group to dismantle the entire organization.

Drug Identification
Monday - Tuesday
Mar 27-28, 2023 8:30 - 4:30
Swan Auditorium, Hilbert College

Drug Identification is a critical tool that every law enforcement officer should know. Unfortunately, almost no police department in the nation provides a course-specific training in their academies for this pertinent investigative tool. This information is not just for the seasoned Detective or senior officer, but also for the new officer who has just begun their career. The ability to immediately recognize narcotics, their paraphernalia, cutting agents, and physiological effects in any situation allows the officer to conduct a thorough investigation and have success in arresting drug violators and seizing large quantities of drugs, firearms, and U.S. currency.

This two-day training course will provide an in-depth look at the most common narcotics currently found on the street, the contraband associated with the them, and the physiological and psychological effects. Numerous sample pictures of the narcotics, videos of physiological effects, and procedures on how to properly conduct presumptive field tests will be presented to officers. Officers will participate in case studies where officers were fired and/or arrested for narcotics based scandals due to a lack of policies and procedures regarding presumptive field-testing or evidence handling.
