It is the mission Statement of the La Paz County Task Force to provide a specialized investigative support service to Law Enforcement Agencies within La Paz County, where illegal drug investigations are the primary focus. A secondary component of the Task Force mission is to provide investigative support to these agencies if requested, where any racketeering offense is involved.
The overall objective of the Task Force is to work cooperatively with its contributing member Law Enforcement agencies as well as other Law Enforcement agencies, in vigorously identifying, investigating, arresting and prosecuting illegal drug users, dealers and traffickers within La Paz County.
The ultimate ideal objective of the Task Force Mission is to substantially reduce and or eliminate the detrimental effects that illegal drug use and drug trafficking have on the citizens of La Paz County.
