The Byron Police Department makes numerous narcotics-related arrests each year.
The follow-up investigation of these arrests that made by patrol officers and other detectives within the Byron Police Department are the responsibility of the Narcotics Unit.
In addition to completing this follow-up investigation, the detectives assigned to the Narcotics Unit initiate their own cases, assist other agencies conducting narcotics-related investigations with ties to the City of Byron, and follow up on clues provided by the public.
Detectives assigned to this unit receive advanced training in the field of narcotics and dangerous drugs, clandestine laboratories, asset forfeiture, wire taps and specialized surveillance equipment. The members of the Narcotics Unit receive constant refresher training so that they remain up-to-date on current drug trends.
Narcotics crimes investigated by this unit can vary from the street level dealers to ‘major vendor’ class narcotic trafficking.
Through our close relationship with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Byron narcotics detectives have conducted national and international narcotic trafficking investigations. The Narcotics Unit also provides training to the Byron Police Department’s patrol officers as well as conducting public education programs to assist our citizens with neighborhood-related drug problems.
