The purpose of integrated drug and contraband interdiction operations is to target criminal organizations, groups, or gangs who transit illegal drugs, bulk currency, and people 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, and people, 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.
