Diverted Pharmaceuticals / In-ServiceUp one level
The diversion of legitimate prescription pharmaceuticals poses a serious drug threat to law enforcement agencies across the nation, rivaling that of cocaine, heroin, and even marijuana in many areas of the country. Diverted pharmaceuticals such as OxyContin, Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Hydrocodone, Methandone, and a host of others are readily available, commonly abused, and frequently associated with robberies, assaults, homicides, suspicious death investigations, property crimes, and financial offenses. ‘Pill mills,’ local independent dealers, abusers, and loosely organized criminal groups are the principal transporters and distributors of diverted pharmaceuticals. This eight hour workshop will focus on identifying the current regional trends associated with diverted pharmaceuticals, and sound investigative techniques used to combat this epidemic.
