Drug trafficking affects everyone in our community, directly or indirectly – families, children, businesses, the court system, law enforcement, corrections, first responders, schools, hospital. The Missouri River Drug Task Force is a multi-agency task force that goes after major drug trafficking organizations in Gallatin, Lewis and Clark, Park, Meagher, Madison, Broadwater, and Sweet Grass counties. In addition to pursuing drug traffickers, the MRDTF supports the Montana Meth Project and the DEA’s Drug Take Back Day.
Participating agencies include Department of Homeland Security, FBI, Drug Enforcement Agency, Montana Department of Justice, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Lewis & Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Park County Sheriff’s Office, Bozeman Police Department, Helena Police Department, and Montana State University Police Department.
The mission of the Missouri River Drug Task Force is to provide a collaborative federal, state and local law enforcement effort to identify, target, and address those involved in drug trafficking, manufacture, and/or violence.
