About South Florida HIDTA

The South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area was established in 1990.  This program fosters cooperation among law enforcement agencies in this region and involves them in developing a strategy to target the region’s drug-related threats to public safety and its related violence.  The South Florida HIDTA uses the funding provided by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) that sponsors a variety of law enforcement initiatives that target the region’s illicit drug threats.

 

Over the last three years, the SFLHIDTA has seized an average of $713 million worth of illicit drugs per year from regional and international drug trafficking organizations. Drugs seized include cocaine, heroin, marijuana, Ecstasy, methamphetamine and all types of diverted pharmaceutical medications.
