Ohio’s Drug Task Forces

Ohio has twenty-seven multi-jurisdictional Drug Task Forces who service most of the state. Many of these agencies operate as an investigative collaboration between Sheriff Offices and municipal Police Departments, while several are independant Law Enforcement entities. With the eventual elimination of Federal Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants Ohio’s Drug Task Forces are currently seeking permenant funding solutions through a state legislative initiative. The leadership of Ohio’s Drug Task Forces are represented by the Ohio Task Force Commanders Association.
