Welcome to the Shelby County Drug Task Force Website
The mission of the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force is to create an environment
free of illegal drugs within Shelby County and its communities, schools and places
of work. The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force hopes to eliminate illegal
narcotics from Shelby County, Alabama, by investigating complaints of illegal narcotics
activity, by arresting illegal narcotic offenders, by aiding in the criminal prosecution
of illegal narcotics offenders, by seizing and destroying illegal narcotics and
the equipment used to manufacture illegal narcotics, through educational programs
presented to civic organizations and our local schools, and by promoting a drug
free environment through the personal lives of its members.
