Drug Enforcement Administration Intelligence Program

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is responsible for enforcing the controlled substance laws and regulations of the United States. DEA’s Intelligence Program helps initiate new investigations of major drug organizations, strengthens ongoing investigations and subsequent prosecutions, develops information that leads to seizures and arrests, and provides policy-makers with drug trend information upon which programmatic decisions can be based.

DEA's Intelligence Program consists of several entities that are staffed by both Intelligence Analysts and Special Agents: Intelligence groups/functions in the domestic field divisions, district, resident, and foreign offices; the El Paso Intelligence Center; and the Intelligence Division at DEA Headquarters.
