AZHIDTA - Arizona High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area

HIDTA PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) Program is a grant-funded initiative of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) that provides assistance to Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies operating in areas determined to be critical drug trafficking regions of the United States.

HIDTA funds are used to enhance and improve the collective efforts of law enforcement to interdict, investigate, and prosecute those who traffic in drugs. Law enforcement organizations within HIDTAs assess drug trafficking problems and design specific initiatives to reduce or eliminate the production, manufacture, transportation, distribution, and chronic use of illegal drugs and money laundering.
