With a focus on narcotic and vice-related investigations, the Narcotics Section strives to enhance the quality of life in the City of Pueblo. The Section aggressively pursues these investigations with an emphasis on targeting those responsible for supplying and distributing illicit drugs to our community.
The Narcotics Section is composed of one sergeant and twelve detectives. Of the 12 detectives, four are assigned to narcotics/vice enforcement with one of the detectives assigned to specifically investigate prescription drug fraud. Four detectives are assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Southern Colorado Drug Task Force, two detectives are assigned to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) Gun Task force, and two are assigned to FBI Safe Streets Task force. Starting in April of 2018 two officers were selected from patrol, on a thirty-day rotation basis, and assigned to work with the FBI Safe Streets Task Force in order to assist with gang related investigations.
